Back From NYC
Well, Mick and I went to NYC to buy fabric and to have our anniversary dinner. We arrived and hit the garment district first thing and I loaded up on cute summer fabrics. They all just arrived today and the UPS guy just left them outside, I'm so mad. I had to schlepp them all inside by myself, well not quite, my friend helped me with the last package but dang those were heavy, like 70 or 80 pounds a piece. Anyway, we had a very productive trip; two days scouring the district for fabulous fabrics and of course I had to stop at the bead store, and I'm sharing some of my loot with my cousin Sharon, who makes beautiful jewelry in her spare time. I'm excited about the fabric and I can't wait to get it photographed and up. I happened upon a lovely piece of silk charmeuse that Mood bought most of (but not all) so that was a bit of a coup and I got a cotton faille and a printed voile and some pastel cotton lawns with stretch (that's a new thing I think) and some really cool jerseys. I would photograph them right now but I needed to take a little sit down from schlepping them inside. I'll probably get the lions share of it photographed and up this evening with a little help from my reluctant business partner. WOOHOO!!!!!
