Thank you so much for all of you who have decided
to submit a block for the Tokyo Quilt Festival to
be held in January next year. Also, thank you for
those of you who helped me spread the word about it.
It looks like I will be looking for over 50 blocks
at the festival so far! How Fun!!! If you are still
debating whether you should do it or not, I hope
you'll decide to join! We've got over 2 months to
make just one block if that sounds more doable :)
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
This is a block for the Ringo Pie Bee I just finished
today. Marit wanted her blocks to have a summer theme.
"Lemonade" was the first thing that came across my mind
and then later a "Lobster", but when I saw a super enticing
ad of frappuccino at Starbucks the other day,
I immediately knew that I was going to make a frappuccino
block instead. (Sure, I love food too much!) I asked Marit
what her favorite flavor is among 1) coffee, 2) strawberry, and
3) green tea and she picked strawberry.
Mine is most definitely green tea! My friends often make
fun of me for liking green tea frappuccino/green tea latte
at Starbucks too much. I know Starbucks' green tea frappuccino
doesn't come with green tea syrup on top of cream like this,
but it would be really cool if it did.
I don't know if it's just me, but this block makes
me feel nostalgic for some reasons. I feel like
watching a movie from the 50's or something tonight
We finally bought tickets to leave for Japan on June 27th.
I have such a mixed feeling about this move. It's going to
be really awesome to move to a place I have friends and family
waiting for us. And I have pretty good knowledge of the city in
Tokyo we are moving to, which makes me feel good. But I think
I'll miss my friends and my family in law here so, so, SO MUCH!
I'll miss this apartment we lived for three years.
I'll miss this wonderful weather, the beautiful, clear sky in
California. I'll miss American fabrics (Luckily there seems to
be a quite big fan base of Japanese fabric, so hopefully I'll
sweet talk some folks into fabric swaps, hehe.)
And luckily, all my close friends have promised me to
come to visit me in Tokyo soon, including one of them
who I'll see in just one week and Tamiko who I'll see in
January!) so that's making me feel better to think like that.
Ok time for me to start packing some more!
Thank you for stopping by :)
Have a lovely weekend!
