Yay! I made it to NY! I went on the trip with my husband to see his show and ended up with a couple of extra hours for some fabric shopping (in between eating, art shows, museums, trying to stay warm and more eating). I walked up and down 37th, 38th and 39th and hit Mood Fabrics. I picked up (from top to bottom) a beautiful cotton challis, blue cotton lightweight twill stripe, multi stripe stretch shirting (I can never pass up a shirting), embroidered Ralph Lauren cotton voile and a chevron print silk chiffon. I also bought Mood rulers for all of my students.
While I was in NY, I had the pleasure of meeting a kindred spirit and talented quilter and she suggested several quilt stores. My husband and I were not too far from City Quilter so we stopped in. He sat in the "husband chair" with eyes glazed over while I flitted around and found some real treasures. I'm planning on a quilt for the lavender print, a skirt for the blue and white cotton/linen and pillows for my bed out of the ikat.
In looking at these pictures I see I really had blue on my mind that day!
I've already started sewing. I'll share soon....
