27 hours in NYC
I think that photo sums up the weekend nicely.
Antoinette was in the city this weekend and we had a blast.
(btw, did you know, Antoinette has a new blog?)
Random photos from this weekend, not necessarily in order.
The denim I bought at Mood. Yes, floral printed denim!
At a sit-down stop on the food tour--love this picture! Antoinette's wearing her just-sewn faux-leather raglan sleeved shirt.
In Washington Square Park. I'm wearing my J Stern Designs jeans.
The Empire State Building (blue) and Chrysler Building (white, down and to the right of the blue) as lit up last night, as seen from our hotel room.
The City Quilter
My fabric haul (Mood top row, Truemart Discount Fabrics, bottom row).
The goods from Pacific Trimming (except for the Sashiko coasters; that's from the City Quilter). All the metal buckles are for making ribbon belts.
This is the Truemart storefront. It's a square. Fabric is on the perimeter and interior of the square, with a narrow aisle for walking.
Truemart is a block from the FedEx/Kinkos. Carry your purchases one block, ship and be done with it!
That's the sparkle denim I bought at TrueMart. Beth, I'm actually wearing a pink shirt I made years ago but it was cold I have my jacket zipped up.
Not bad for 27 hours in the city: PacTrim, a random button shop, Mood, food tour, Chelsea Flea (sadly we saw no sewlebrities), City Quilter, TrueMart, Doughnut Plant. We also went to the Punk exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. No pix allowed, but I really enjoyed it, more than I thought I would. It rained today but no freaky thunderstorms and no shootings made for a really pleasant visit. :) And how could I forget? She helped me tweak my pants muslin too. Woot!
Here's the back of the shirt. Love the safety pin!
Blackout doughnuts at Doughnut Plant rock my world. I have two more to eat over the next two days....
It's time to stop shopping and start sewing! Double welt pockets and trouser fly front insertions are in my near future!
