Ha roo! Zimmie here! I was reading Jazz and Dixie's blog the other day - you know them, they're those gorgeous Beagle babes in Japan! They mentioned picking up a Bento - a Japanese lunchbox. How fun! I wonder what was in theirs?
We don't have that kind of Bento box here in Kansas, but as I told Jazz & Dixie, Dave helped Mom make a quilt in a pattern called "Bento Box"! Here it is:
I'm not sure why they call it "Bento Box" - Stormy said maybe because it looks like it has a bunch of little compartments to tuck different foods into. Mom hasn't quilted this yet - after she does, I wonder if she's going to put rice, meat or veggies on it!?! Ha roo roo roo!
Mom made her Bento Box in her and Dave's favorite colors, white and bl-wooooooo! It will probably go somewhere in the outer room of the Quilt Studio where there is a bunch of other blue and white stuff, like the celadon lamps Mom bought in Korea. You can see a couple of those in this picture of the "outer" studio.
She has some of the traditional Cheong-ja or green celadon, too, but Dave suggested it would be better if it was grouped together somewhere else in the house. You know... since it's green and all. Dave's really good about knowing stuff like that.
Well, that's our version of a Bento Box. I like it just fine, but I think Jazz & Dixie's sounds much more like something I could sink my teeth into! (And not get scolded. Ha roo roo roo!)
I just love learning about different cultures, don't you?
Play bows, all!
