I Read in Bed [Not!]

Here are the black and white fabrics I ordered from eQuilter. They arrived on Wednesday, and were waiting for me when I got home from Quilt Shop Hopping.
I love black and white together. (Every cat I have ever owned has been black and white.) I wanted to use these black and white fabrics in my version of the Reading in Bed Quilt.Last night I laid out these pieces to see what it might look like. I am really liking this.

Anyway, after the terrific black and white fabrics arrived, my son called and asked if he could take me out to dinner. I said, "Yes!" He took me out for sushi!

An aside here...
Now, if you think sushi is just raw fish and you don't like it, I don't want to hear about it. Firstly you would be wrong, and secondly I bet you never even tried it! Don't tell me you don't like it if you never bothered to try it. My son got me to try it a few years ago when I visited him at college. "Mom, you always tell me to try new things... you should try this..." He was right, I had been telling him that all his life. I had to put my money where my mouth was. Sushi can be absolutely divine!

When your dear son takes you out to dinner, opens every door, holds out your chair, helps you with your coat, and pays the bill... well, then you have a wonderful evening. I had to do a few errands afterward. I needed to buy some blue painter's tape and a dowel to hang a quilt, some cat food for Millie and I wanted to find the newest Quiltmaker magazine, so we went to the big box hardware store, then the pet store and then to the local Barnes and Noble, where we split a Red Velvet Cupcake. We always have fun together, and this was no exception.

He brought me home, saw me safely indoors, gave me a big hug and a kiss and then left.

I'm telling you, it was a -perfect- day!

Sounds to me the prefect day. It's good spending quality time with your family. Your son sounds like the perfect gentleman, you brought him up well.

Love the black and whites! I've been getting a few here and there,too. Not quite sure what I'm going to do with them, but I'm sure an idea will come.

Now as for sushi, I adore it! I just went to a sushi restaurant here and had one of the most marvelous dishes, salmon with wasabi-green tea sauce. Heavenly, is all I can say.

Glad to see other sushi lovers out there.

I got DH to try sushi for the first time on his 45th birthday. He said, "This is good!" I said, "DUH!" LOL And it's the best when it's fresh. The store bought stuff (to bring home and eat later) just isn't the same.

I love the colors with the black and white. The black and white prints look so crisp and pop the colors.

What a perfect day with your son. My daughter and boyfriend are the ones that invieted me out for sushi a few years ago for the first time. They have since learned to make their own now. I love it.

Wow, it doesn't get any better than the last couple of days you've had! (With your sister and then with your son.) Kudos to you for raising such a gentleman.

I'm curious about the size of your liberated log cabin blocks. They looked pretty big in the first pictures we saw them in but now with sashing they look much smaller. Care to divulge?
