City Weekend

New Stash Additions

I had a big weekend so I didn't get any sewing done. On Friday night we took the red eye from LA to NYC. Saturday was spent catching up with friends here and there before the Big Event on Sunday. Sunday evening we were honored to witness the marriage of our friends Jason and Holly. It was a stunning ceremony in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, under a chuppah spilling over with waves of white orchids. The evening was lovely and well worth the whirlwind trip. I say whirlwind because we were on the first flight back home Monday morning because I had to work yesterday. I am still greatly fatigued but loved every minute. I was even able to steal away for 20 minutes and take a pilgrimage to Purl Soho. Ah how I miss that place!

At first I wasn't going to buy anything until I discovered that they had City Weekend (how appropriate dontcha' think?) in stock! I mean, have you seen it? It is gorgeous! I just had to take some home. I made it out of there with four half yard cuts from the City Weekend line, a half yard of some of Joel Dewbury's Modern Meadow and another half yard of this adorable Japanese linen - I think it's called Bubbles. The little goldfish are so sweet.

As I was leaving I spied a pre-cut half yard bundle of some more yummy Japanese fabrics that were calling my name. All in all I didn't do too bad. And my wonderful and amazing fiance even approved. He asked me if I would make a couple pillows for our couch from the City Weekend. I have to say I am soooo in love with City Weekend. I think I am going to have to break down and buy more for my stash. I especially love the orange and teal color way. It is so perfectly me. I am in love for sure!

  1. what a fun weekend! and great new additions to your stash indeed!

  2. I'm so jealous. Purlsoho wasn't on my radar when I lived in the States. Wish it was only a weekend trip away, but from Australia, ah, no. Fabrics look gorgeous!
