Get me Outta Chitown
Work related travel is going to eat up much of the next 5 weeks. Right now I'm stuck at O'Hare Airport, waiting for some storms to clear so that I can get home. If you recall, the last time I was stuck in an airport, I was in no shape for sewing when I got home. Thankfully, the beers here seem to come in more manageable sizes.
This was just a quick stop in the Windy City; an overnight stay. However, yesterday, I was able to fit in a tiny little bit of fabric shopping. I headed to Vogue Fabrics and I have to say, there were many tempting pieces of fabric, a friendly staff and lots of space (something I am unused to as a NY shopper). In particular, the "remnant room" had some great bargains on 1-2 yard cuts of fabric. Knowing that I didn't have much room in my suitcase, I showed admirable restraint and only bought some baby blue duchess satin for the Christening romper bottom project. Although, now I am regretting not buying a beautiful piece of light blue silk that was in the remnant room. C'est la vie.
Next week, I am off to Toronto and the following week to London. My schedule for both of those trips will definitely leave room for fabric shopping. I can't wait. Oh, and next time I will bring my larger suitcase...
