Maccaroons seem to be taking over the world, they are to be spotted on many quilts too! This one was in the junior section, I love the three dimentional feel the quilt has been given by stuffing the maccaroons.

This French themed quilt sans maccaroons was in the adult quilt section, love the scalloped borders.

This very beautiful very large quilt caught my eye yesterday, the colours were so subtle with superb workswomanship.

Horray, the day is over and its Chocolate Paradise time again. This department store has almost a whole floor of chocalatiers each with their own display of merchandise. Its a very competitive market and with Valentines day around the corner this event is designed to attract many people to come and sample the wonderful chocolates and then choose which ones to buy for their loved ones...I loved taste testing all the different varieties.

This was the sweet (English speaking) young lady who sold me some chocolates :) I love the uniform.

Here we are on the train home with our little bags full of yummy chocolates!

Jane (Labours of Love-Antique Quilts), me, Mary Koval (fabric designer for Windham and antique quilts), Mary Kay (one of the International judges at the show here in Tokyo). We all look rather happy with our little bags of goodies and I want to eat mine but since I bought them for my dad I had better just smell them through the packaging!

A couple of us ended the day with a frozen margarita....needless to say I slept very well!
