Meetings and Greetings

I feel bad for the New York area bloggers and sewers. People like me come into town, twist their arms and beg them to go shopping or out for cocktails. This little trip to NY started with a bang as I got to meet Ann of Gorgeous Fabrics for the first time ever (photo ganked from her blog). She is taller than I thought and as chic as I imagined.  I really appreciate her slouching to make me seem taller. Not to put her business out there, but she’s also rocking a great haircut.

On Friday though the gloves came off. First, can I just say, I need to stop buying fabric like I’m never coming back to New York and acting like fabric is going  extinct!  Friday, before leaving town the locals came out for NYC cocktails. You  know it’s NY when they don’t even bother putting a price on the menu next to the specialty drinks. My guess was $15 each. They were $12.50. That’s not much more than Baltimore. And, it didn’t stop me from downing three.

NancyK and Rosie

Poor NancyK. She had to help me schlep fabric all over the garment district. And bless Rosie for helping me carry everything to my bus!

Elizabeth, Peter and Trena

Elizabeth’s coat is quite something. I fondled the lapel a few times. I didn’t get to talk to Peter as much as I would have like, but what a sweet guy! Trena. Grrrr. I’ll wait for her to tell you about that awesome dress. Let’s just say she told me I was going to be jealous and I am.

LindsayT and, well, me without makeup on. Would a little lipstick kill me?

I can’t wait to show you what I had done in NYC thanks to the wisdom of one LindsayT!
