I Went To NYC And All I Got Was Fabric

Well, and a skirt from American Apparel, but that doesn't quite have a ring to it.

When I booked our hotel in Chelsea, I wasn't aware that it was a mere three blocks from The City Quilter! How thrilled was I?! We'd arrived at the hotel before check-in time so we wandered around and the quilt shop was our first stop. 

The hubs (bless him) sat on a chair and let me have my fun. And what fun I had! Well, I did control myself... my basket was pretty full initially, then I put back things I didn't 'need'. Ahem. 

I got this tiny little Japanese hexagon patchwork book, and it's so darling! I need to start drinking tea so I can make a tea cosy for teapot I don't currently own! 

And I also made off with a few cuts of Japanese fabrics that were too good to pass up. Love those scooters and hexagons! 

There was a small bit of yellow pearl necklace in the large scrap bin so I scooped it up. And I got New York fabric that only The City Quilter sells because they designed it themselves. I have a few FQs of their New York fabric so I got yardage in hopes that I can finally get round to making something.

Didn't go to Purl Soho this time, but I reckon I spent enough there last time so I could skip a visit!

Mmmm....love the fabric with the double decker buses...is that a London fabric? Whenever I go to a city, i always check the distance between my fave hotel and the nearest LQS!! Extra points for the hotel, if the LQS is within walking distance (or close on the Metro/underground).
Lovely fabrics, I need to go to NYC, never been....maybe you could be my tour guide lol.
