Pat came up for the weekend, and we hit the stores in my hood for some goodies, before making our way down to City quilter and Purl Soho.. I added some African fabrics to my stash... Blues with greens and golds! love! With thread to match! and some soft fabulous fabrics to make THIS.
Jackie, you must come back for more Silks and African prints by now!
Dehydrated, frozen mannequins, with their clothes hanging on the racks! haha!
The fact that the window behind says STUB HUB is even funnier!
Boo did pretty good... ;-)
I tried so hard not to buy yarn!!!
Besides Quilting, what other Hobby(s) do you indulge in?
I do a little knitting in addition to quilting/sewing. Any suggestions for other stores that should not be missed on a visit to NYC? fabric/yarn....Thanks!!ReplyDelete
Painting with watercolors, and acrylic paint. Making beaded earrings, and oh yes, that yearning to buy yarn to knit with - it is such an addiction. Where I live, Purl Soho's website warehouse is here and open to public on certain days during the week.ReplyDelete
For the last few years I have mostly been knitting and painting - besides quilting, but I also do embroidery and needlepoint and crochet and work with clay and love crafting all kinds of Christmas ornaments. And I draw. Yes, that would be all I think. Unless eating chocolate and being a grandma counts as hobby?ReplyDelete
Well I know that was one fun day! I must say I LOVE Pat's scarf and bag! I'm all about the fabric but I do love yarn and hope to get back to crocheting.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a fun time by all. My other hobby is reading - I can spend hours getting lost in a good book!!ReplyDelete
The picture of the mannequins made laugh!ReplyDelete
I knit, make jewllry, scrapbook and papercraft
Love that photo!!!ReplyDelete
I read a lot, scrapbook, and am just learning to knit. There is just not enough time for all of it!
Looks like you guys had a great weekend. Love the manikins..lolReplyDelete
My life has me spending two months in San Diego and two months at my home in New Mexico. When I'm in CA, I quilt like a wild woman, embroider towels, hand quilt and I'm about to add punch needling to the mix when I go back. In NM, I dye wool, spin it, knit lots of donation clothing, and my other huge passion: hook rugs. So...it's always hard to leave wherever I am, but I know there's a lot of fun waiting at the other end of that flight (although I must say I've been in NM for a month and am buying fabrics like a crazy person on line, having it shipped to CA). Oh..my name's Martie, and I'm a fiberholic...LOL.ReplyDelete
LOVE the cowl! For Christmas I made several of Anna Maria Horner's figure 8 scarves of velvet and voile. YUM! When spring hits I do mosaic. So much fun to incorporate it in the garden. Oh and READING...yes.ReplyDelete
My current other hobbies are my granddaughter and reading. When I have time at home, I enjoying quilting mostly, with blogging second.ReplyDelete
Gardening, reading, making music, attending concerts, cooking - and eating! :)ReplyDelete
i had SUCH a blast!! Stealing your mannequin photo and photo of me for later this week.. wink!ReplyDelete
OMG, don't go down the slippery slope of yarn ;-) I used to x stitch, but keep myself caged in to just quilting. No room for other crafts! Now to check out the Fashion Dist. tab on your blog.ReplyDelete
Yes, the knitting, quilting and blog reading and writing... then to a much lesser degree, jewelry making and other crafting as needed.ReplyDelete
1. I love Pat's lime scarf and bag!ReplyDelete
2. The legs and body parts are hilarious.
3. I make felt embroidered balls by hand as baby toys. Each ball takes a minimum of 50 hours stitching.
You don't need to twist my arm! I am coming .... can you hear me... My other hobby is eating, so those cupcakes fit right in quite nicely. Even the black lagoon! I bet it tasted just fine!ReplyDelete
Late reading blogs as usual but I'm primarily a weaver. Quilting was a detour after a serious accident. When the surgeons had me put back together I found I was hooked on quilting. Now I do both, plus some bead work.ReplyDelete
Crochet and I've had a heck of a time not buying yarn. I have gone cowl crazy and want to make one in every yarn I find.ReplyDelete
Hi Victoria - In addition to quilting (and the mayhem I create working), I bake. I have THE best peanut butter cookie recipe on my brand new (New Year's Resolution) blog (on blogger - Doodles and Designs). I have a number of old fashioned recipes gathered from my life in Missouri before moving to California that I will eventually post.ReplyDelete
