Onto the real deal of visiting the city - yes I wanted to be with my kids but planning a trip to Purl/Soho was an absolute must! So I had it all mapped out and how to get there and everything from the Museum. It was so crowded down in the city on Saturday (I should have known) So much to do that by the time we actually arrived it was 15 minutes to closing time. Ugh! Good thing I knew what I wanted. It is a small shop but packed with such goodness I couldn't even begin to describe it.
My daughter walked away with a yard of "Innocent Crush" by Anna Maria Horner - Westminster Fabrics
a bit expensive but she fell in love with it and wants me to make an apron out of it for her. So pretty!
Here is the little card I walked away with from the counter:
This is what I walked away with:
The threads on the left will be for my birds and flowers and the two medium blues on the right will be for the design on the right in the above photo. I am not a blue person - I prefer green but I think it will be a nice change and the color blue in person is so pretty. Hard to depict in the photo the true color.
Anyone else enjoy doing Sashiko - any suggestions or comments ?? Please post :)
Thanks for coming and visiting me at my blog.
