Japan report

Don't expect much.  This is the ONLY picture I took.  I was too busy having fun with my family to remember to pull out my camera.  My mom snapped this one with her cell.  It is of a square watermelon Japanese farmers are trying to market (square ones are apparently easier to ship and store in little Japanese refrigerators).  My mom thinks being squeezed in a plexiglass cube makes them sad, and not taste so sweet.  I was interested in trying a piece, but there was only one for display. 

Scott and I are off to another trip tomorrow, this time with the kids.  Blue ocean, water park, hikes, and lots of cousin time awaits.  

I will post the fabric and books I got in Japan when I get back.

Man, that watermelon does a look a little sad. I like them round myself. Glad to hear you had a good time. Can't wait to hear about your next trip.

Your hair looks amazing! Was it the humidity that made it that curly?

I agree with your mom - I don't think a fruit with right angles would taste right. It's taking the zen right out of it.

I'm anxious for the fabric report and even more excited to see your new patterns
