I spent the weekend in New York City, which means that I spent too much money. Here are a few things that came home with me:

- a striped Marc Jacobs dress that was so on sale, buying it was almost like stealing
- fall shorts (!)
- lots and lots of fabric

I visited The City Quilter, a wonderful quilt shop on W. 25th St., and also The Purl Bee, a beautiful shop in SoHo. If you get to NYC often or if you'll be going anytime soon, you simply must visit these shops. The women were so helpful and friendly and the New York City quilt vibe is exciting. The projects on the walls are tre interesting and fun, and there are always delicious fabrics for the perusing.

I'll post more pictures when I get them onto my computer. For now, here's one of me - yes, in my new striped dress -- digging through little fat eighth bundles at The City Quilter. Note the awesome patchwork behind my head!

I love the City Quilter such a cute shop. My mom lives in Manhattan so I try to go down often
