Make-A-List Monday - Not Much Sewing Going On!

Hi, all!

This week, Make-A-List Monday is going to take a brief hiatus, because I'm currently enjoying a New York experience!  

We arrived on Saturday and found our hotel, which looks out over Times Square - it's in the heart of the theater district, with multiple shows on either side of the block it presides over and Schubert Alley right across the street!  

We've already been to see Wicked and Les Miserables; tonight's show is Something Rotten.  Can you tell we like Broadway musicals?

We also went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art today - there was an amazing exhibition of clothing throughout the modern age, talking about the hand vs. machine construction.  Here's a few of the more interesting things we saw...

Yo-yos!  Who knew they could be used for clothing?

And if you run out of fabric, just grab some drink straws!

Yes, they are really made from plastic drink straws!!

Beautiful color inspiration....

And look at that black and white - makes me want to run to my sewing machine!!

Tomorrow I'll be hitting up the fabric stores while my husband is working - pictures of that later this week!

I'll review last week's list and get back on track next Monday - but for now I'm going to play! 

So now I'll live vicariously through you - what are YOU working on ?




  1. Don't miss the garment district! Mood - Gotham-City Quilter for fun taxi fabric..........

  2. You're doing just what I'd be doing if I were in NYC! Can't wait to hear about your fabric store experiences!

  3. Watching you in NYC thru FB - you deserve some time off.

  4. Looks like fun! Enjoy!!

  5. Having been to New York (once, it's a long way from Perth, WA) and seeing 2 shows in one day, (9 to 5 and Mary Poppins) I think its a great way to spend your time. Lovely to hear you're having a bit of a break - love the black and white too.

  6. I am working on a lap quilt for the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild project for Pulse.
    Les Miserables is one of my favorites. I haven't seen Wicked - but I loved the book and I love the music. Have fun!

  7. I finished my book for great grandson, so next I'm back to a DP Love Ring wedding quilt.
    Thanks for sharing the clothing exhibit. Very interesting.

  8. I'm still plugging away on the t-shirt close! and I'm working on a rainbow hearts lap quilt for Orlando MQG #quiltsforpulse. Have a blast in NYC - I'll live vicariously through you!

  9. My inlaws were also in NYC last weekend. They saw Fiddler on the Roof, the Rockettes, and something else.
