My sister, Rian, was in town for about 24 hours earlier this week and so of coarse we went to Mood Fabrics.  Thank you Rian for all of these awesome iphone pics of the trip.  It was so much fun.

Swatch taking a nap.

A self portrait as we ate some delicious cookies outside of Levain bakery.

My child on the subway after 4 bribery lollipops, cookies and no nap.

I did buy some fabric that I am really excited about.

These are two sweater knits that I am hoping to make big cardigan, cape type items out of.

And this was a really awesome, structured, swimwear fabric that I just couldn’t pass up.  I am going to save this to make a retro inspired swimsuit next summer.

    Oooh Aaah! I’m going to be in NYC for about 48 hours next weekend and think Mood MUST be on the list. And I might search out that exact same red sweater knit for yet another Briar. Fun to hang with your sister, too!!

    What a fun trip! Your sister is as cute as you and the tot! ALSO– Levain is my FAVORITE! I’m not a crazy cookie person, but theirs are like huge bites of joy!

    Oh so jealous!! Love the sister picture – such beautiful ladies! And I’m going to have to troll the Mood website to see if I can find a sweater knit like that red one…

    Great fabric choices. New York is my favourite city, just 12,000kms too far for regular visitation.
