Fabric Shopping in NYC

Today I purchased some gorgeous cotton print fabric at The City Quilter, a shop located in NYC's Chelsea district in Manhattan that specializes in fabric for the urban quilter and sewer. Today my partner Tom joined me for the trip and took some photos while I perused their many bolts of cotton fabric. My mission was to find some lining fabric for my purses made from Harris Tweed Plaid which turned out to be a daunting task. I did not want a solid color, too boring, but matching a plaid with a print is quite difficult. The pattern needs to either be very subtle or match particularly well with the plaid. I walked along the bolts of fabric holding up my swatches of plaid to each print until I finally found my perfect matching textile.

I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
