This was our view. It's either Madison Ave. or 31st St. I'm not sure which.
Check out this carpet! It's in the hallway outside of our room. Hmmmm? Some quilty inspiration don't you think?
So we totally used the subway system, never took a cab, and did lots of walking. We went to see the Flying Karamazov Brothers on Friday and then saw Laura Linney in the play, Time Stands Still, on saturday. Loved them both. We poked around Soho, went to Ground Zero, and I managed to visit TWO quilt shops. The City Quilter was just wonderful and I got some lovely solids there, and Purl Soho was the source for some great organic cottons. I also got some very cool stuff in another Soho shop. I'll share photos of my loot in my next post.
Twenty-five years ago I married a wonderful man and I would surely do it again. Seriously folks, he went to two quilt shops and waited patiently while I hemmed and hawwed (? is that spelled right?) over my purchases. He did get to spend some time playing in the Sam Ash music store, but not as much time as I spent fondling fabric. I've been catching up on the laundry and housework but have found a little time to work on my Halloween quilt. The applique rows are time consuming but the spiders are so cute. I will catch you up on my progress very soon. And very very soon, I plan on chopping into some new fabric and popping out a new quilt. Believe it!!
