Wednesday was an exciting day for me. I have school all morning. My school is next door to the Noritake Showroom and Gallery. I usually pop into the gallery to see what is being exhibited. It is usually paintings, sometimes pottery and rarely antiques. Yesterday it was quilts! They were beautiful. Many were very old and patched from denim, wool, etc. You could tell that it was a true scrap quilt made from what was on hand. My favorite was a quilt that had patches from Domino sugar sacks and flour sacks. I wanted to take a picture, but didn’t have the nerve to ask. The picture above was of the quilt in the front window. It entices you to come in!
Today also had an exciting event. It is difficult to find a lot of things here that we like to eat. We live in a major city so we do have access to a lot that we didn’t have before. Of course, it is for a pretty price. There is Costco in Japan, but we live 3 hours from the nearest one. The tolls to get there would take up any money that we had to spend. We have discovered that there is a website where we can order from Costco and they will ship to our door. I ordered on Monday and it arrived today. I don’t usually buy Ghirardelli chocolate chips, but they are cheaper than the Japanese ones and much better tasting. We nurse them along. My favorite item on the table is the Colby/ Jack cheese. I haven’t had that in 15 months. It is a new item and I am thrilled beyond words! My mouth is watering!
