Here is a closeup of the two huge flowers on the right that I just finished.
Here are the City Sampler blocks I got done this week.
I'm trying to either stick to the same color palette or to use the same fabrics as shown in the book. Finding solids of the right color is a challenge!
And here's my fussy cut star for the week, using another Judie Rothermel Peace and Unity fabric.
I copied straight from Temecula Quilt Co on this one.
I received a lovely surprise in the mail this week from Paula of Kelmscott Designs.
Aren't they wonderful? They are the Pear and Red Barn needleminders and the Hearts Atopple Scissors. Thank you so much, Paula! I love them!
This past Friday, the father type and I had a dinner date and art gallery opening to attend with some friends in the evening in NYC. Since I was going into the city, I figured I'd have some fun beforehand. So I went gallivanting! Here are some pics of my adventure.
Evidence of spring in Bryant Park.
Lovely fabrics in B&J Fabrics, in the heart of the garment district.
Had to stop here!
A rest stop at Caffe Bene (never been before, but it was yummy! Strawberries and a mango peach smoothie.)
Then I headed across town to meet the father type.
And we had our evening with friends. (It felt too tacky to take pics.)
Mia was happy to see us home that night. (I don't think she likes all these adventures and late nights we've been having.) She was curious to see what I bought in NYC.
|What's in the bag??|
Most are from the City Quilter, a few from Lion Brand Yarn Studio. The tote at the right and the knitting accessories are from the yarn store, of course. At City Quilter, I got a NYC kitchen towel, a beautiful tin to store sewing supplies in, a piece of fabric with the names of NYC stops in mosaic tile like in the subway, and some Australian Aboriginal fabrics.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
