Would you eat this?

Last week I went to the local 'Super-Target' style store, Emart. My friend and I loved walking around the grocery area and trying all different kinds of things. We didn't know what a lot of it was, but it was delicious. We came across some interesting things, that I would like to play a game..would you eat this?
Large squid? I have eaten a lot of smaller pieces, but this kind of scares me.
A whole fish. I'm not really a "fishy" person. I like shell fish and some mild fish. Seeing the whole fish packaged up and ready to take home is I think what caught my eye.
Large suction cups? Again, I think this one is the size issue. Each of those suction cups was more than 1/2 inch wide.
What in the world are these? They have spikes!
Shrimp tale surprise! These were delicious. I grabbed two to take home. It was kind of like shrimp in a roll.
Doesn't it look great! I"m not a huge fan of raw sushi, but my DH loves it. I haven't seen sushi this beautiful in the US.
YUMMY! Now these I can handle. Already cooked too! Time for some dinner!

Kwik Crazy Quilt

It's finally finished!
I was able to get an appointment with the long arm to quilt my first quilt on the long arm. I chose a playful paisley quilt design.
I love that I get to learn how to use the long arm and quilt it myself. It's such a great if I only had an extra $50,000 to have one of my own!!
I also made an Easter basket for a new friend. I may be teaching a class on how to make this basket since many people at the quilting group would like to make them.
