The Kappa In Japanese Folklore

  • Kappas are legendary creatures that inhabit the rivers and waterways of Japan. They have beaked noses, shells on their back and a depression on their heads that holds water. Kappa are mischievous troublemakers. Their pranks range from the relatively innocent, such as loudly passing gas or looking up women's kimonos, to the more troublesome such as drowning swimmers and eating children. They feed on their victims by sucking their liver though their anus. They love cucumbers and if you write your name on a cucumber and throw it in the river, the kappa may be appeased by your gift and allow you to swim in peace.

I have the exact same problem. I go into Hancock's to get thread or elastic or some other notion and walk out with $50 worth (or more!) of fabric and patterns. It's a sickness, I tell ya!

Cute stuff...love that embroidery!

I was there today too. I wanted a a zipper for a skirt I am making and came away with a huge sack full of fabric for a totebag, some trim, quilting pencil, iron on fusing and thread. Oh, yeah a magazine and one invisible zipper too. I almost bought a polka dotted printed cardboard letter E too but thought better of it!

Sorry about the double post. I am not used to how typepad works.

Wow, you got some cute stuff happening here! Love the little dotted swiss and the little Japanese set!

I don't live very close to my favorite fabric shop so whenever I go in there, even just for a thread, I always come out with a hundred dollars worth of fabric and extras cause "who knows when I will be back!" :p

Such pretties :) I think we must get sucked into some sort of vortex when we go into those fabric stores. Somehow I always leave with a pile of stuff too when I only went in there for one thing :)
