I wish I could tell you more about this beautiful Korean sewing book from Nobel Bookstore in the H-Mart shopping complex in Ridgefield, New Jersey.

I’ve tried Google Translate, used the Google tool bar on this Korean Sewing Factory website and am working through Rosetta Stone, but I have a long way to go.  Maybe now that my work for Fashion Week is winding down and it’s almost Friday again I’ll have more time. 
Last Saturday we had lunch on St. Mark’s Place

and spied a very cool Singer sewing machine at a sidewalk sale, kinda like the ones lining the walls at the AllSaints boutique in Soho.
A colorful collection of glass bottles and jars made me think of this great article from Martha Stewart Living and some of the photo shoots I’ve visited where they’ve had lots of different props.
On University Place we passed Gigi K, a shop full of interesting stockings….made me want to pick up a crochet hook again since I haven’t used one since I made a few little animals.
At H-Mart on Sunday we had bibimbap, one of my favorites
and bought more ingredients to bring home
to do some more cooking too
and ended the weekend with a nice, quiet meal at home.
I’ve always admired the fascinating Japanese craft books at Kinokuniya by Bryant Park, so it’s great to have a Korean bookstore nearby too.
Maybe I’ll be able to interpret enough to make a fun project someday.
