A trip to the city

Good times! Thanks to everyone who provided recommendations.

We did take a LONG walk to Purl Patchwork – great little store with fabric to the ceiling. I picked up a few prints – mainly polka dots (see, I just can’t help myself!). It looks like I may have to start another polka dot quilt! (speaking of, photos to come tomorrow of the newly finished Spotted Squares).

I missed out on the City Quilter – closed on Mondays – but I did check out Mood, which really is just as pictured on Project Runway. Overwhelming, for sure.

On Sunday we headed out to Brooklyn to see my cousin Zach and cousin-in-law Kim (I’m going to keep using that term Kim!). We had a great time checking out their new place (wonderful!) and the great shops nearby.

Sunday also happens to be the day of the Brooklyn Flea Market, and how was I to resist? A giant yard sale, I’m there! I thought it was fabulous – Morgan and Zach may say otherwise…

I think this is Zach expressing just how much he was enjoying himself…

loads of treasures, I’m sure!

My favorite little booth was a cute little shop out of Brooklyn called Winter Water Factory. They have great hand printed items and may soon offer fabrics. I bought a couple of their fabric samples – seconds, I think, and tried several times to talk them out of their tablecloth (one of their other fabrics which they did not have available there) – no luck.

On the walk back home, we found another shop selling some fabrics, and so of course I got sucked in

I’m pleased to say that I did not get sucked in by any of these items, also for sale (even the business…)

Anyone interested?!

    So glad you had fun. Those fabrics are literally making me drool. I’m heading into the big city for lunch with my brother today – maybe I’ll head downtown for a little side-trip to Purl…
