Yesterday was also rather eventful, on my way walking home from the bus stop, I could hear a faint mewing. That was curious enough, so I looked around for a kitty meowing (that I could possibly pet, of course). I didn't see a cat, but I did spot a tiny gray lump across the street and went to investigate. I'm sure you can infer by now what happened, but I found a very tiny, very scared, very hungry crying kitten. It did not look injured or like a stray, but I called my Mom over and asked her for some tuna. She isn't a cat person, but I was able to coax her over to the kitten. I was especially worried because of the number of dogs in the neighborhood and the fact she was next to a road, so I knew we needed to help her. We were able to convince a cat-loving family across the street to look after the (cutely hissing) little kitten. I haven't head that much back yet but he or she seems to be doing find. Hopefully she's not sick or anything like that (any hopefully they will keep her :) Wheh! That was a long story about a kitten... It's just nice sometimes to have a break from a mundane routine (and help little animals).

Anyways, back to the original reason for this post. The other day I accidentally found a plethora of Japanese mori-esque/natural-kei/zakka embroidery books. Many of the designs are fairly simple and absolutely adorable! I thought that they would be perfect for a bit of spring crafting, the books are full of berry, wildflower and vegetable patterns. The Etsy shop Japan Lovely Crafts has a great variety, and here are my favorites:
