A Fabulous Weekend (Lunch, Fabric Shopping, and Sewing)

Last weekend I had a wonderful time. On Saturday I met Sheila, Rosie and the fabulous diva Rachelle in Manhattan, NY. We had lunch and proceeded to visit a few fabrics stores. See the pic below






On Sunday, Andrea joined us and Sheila took us to fabric stores off the beaten path and we had a great time. In the pic below Rosie is checking out the great fabric selection.

Here is Rachelle and I with the store owner. She was a lot of fun.

Here I am wearing a maxi skirt I made the previous weekend

The weekend was a lot a fun. I got home around 6:30pm on Saturday and at 8pm my DD decided that she wanted to sew a maxi skirt. This was her first sewing project. As a good mom I taught her how to cut and sew a simple maxi skirt, two hours later the skirt was done. I was exhausted, however I got up Sunday morning renewed and ready to go. I hope everyone had a great weekend.
