No Flowers In My Hair

So...I didn't have work this past week, an unexpected break for an unexpected reason that's kind of stinky but not the end of the world. So to look on the bright side of things and take advantage of this little bit of time off I flew up to San Francisco to visit my sister Leigh for a few days. Going someplace by myself I've got two items on my agenda: eating good food and shopping for fabric. Check and check.
First there was yum, yum, yum and yum.
Then I did a little high end shopping here:

Bought myself some bits for a baby quilt I'm planning out for a new baby in the family.

I also bought a whole mess of velvet ribbon. I couldn't resist, they were all so beautiful and I think that they're even more beautiful in a group! The super bum here was that I asked for a yard and a half of each but didn't realize until I got home that the girl only gave me a yard of each. She charged me correctly but a yard just isn't quite enough to be really useful.

I also did a little low-end shopping and brought home an abundance of thrifted zippers and rick-rack, all for less than one yard of that velvet ribbon.

Quite a score. I also had plenty of chances to play with my new camera. Check it out.


  1. Oh you were in my part of town! You caught a really nice weekend too. Glad to see you enjoyed it, and can't wait to see what you make with your haul!

    Great haul of stuff! Love the selection of fabrics and ric-rac for the baby quilt.

  3. guess the velvet ribbon you may need to splice pieces together and recut the needed length... at least they all go together really well :-)

  4. Ha! I'm heading to SF in a few weeks for a conference, thanks for the recommendations!

  5. Drool x 4. We were in SF last week too, terrific weather and endless sights, scope for the imagination.
