It's Friday again, and we all know what that means - - - it's time to get our whoop whoop on! I hope you've all had whoop-worthy weeks - mine hasn't had much sewing, but it's been fun nonetheless. And I do have some pretty fabric to show off! So let's get started!
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I'm sure you know that I spent last weekend plus a few days in New York City! Oh, we had such a fine time! The weather was just gorgeous...
...clear and sunny and pretty comfortable temperature-wise most of the time we were there. It made for really great pictures!
I particularly love this one of the Flatiron Building - I had never seen it from that particular angle, and it looks so thin there!
I was really glad that I had a day to wander around the Garment District, too! I love the iconic needle-and-button statue that lets you know that you have arrived in the Garment District - one of my favorite sights in NYC!
I visited some really great trim shops in NYC - buttons, trims, zippers, ribbons - everything you could possibly imagine can be found in these amazing stores!
But the best part of my day exploring came when I got to meet this lovely lady in real life for lunch! Chris blogs over at Made by ChrissieD, and lives in the NYC area. FYI, she travels all over the world and blogs about the fabric stores she find on her journeys. It's a great resource if you like to travel - her photography is fabulous, as you'll see if you wander around her blog. She sent me a great walking itinerary to follow when I was wandering around the garment district, and arranged for us to meet for lunch at a cute little restaurant. Then we wandered down to.....
...Purl Soho, which is such a fun shop, although much smaller than you would think from their website! Lots of beautiful yarns, Liberty of London fabric, and some of the prettiest linens I've seen in a long time. I did end up with a scrap bag with an interesting mix of pieces...
...and a bolt end of this beautiful linen! It's hard to tell from this picture, but the warp is a light teal blue and the woof is a beautiful bright yellow. In person, it's a beautiful shade of blue-ish green. Unfortunately, it's hard to tell in this picture!
I also picked up the bundle of solid fabrics in this picture...
...then returned to The City Quilter for the owls and foxes, which I had seen there earlier in the day. These fabrics are destined to become a baby quilt for one of my nieces!
And Thursday I got to spend the day with these lovelies - grandkids are the best!! We had a big old time wandering around Target and re-stocking Nana's pantry shelves.
So that's what's been going on in my little corner of the world this week - can I get a whoop whoop??
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's got you dancing a little happy dance?
Share - we want to dance right along with you -
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!!
