Among other things, we went on the Staten Island ferry, shopped, visited the Brooklyn Museum of Art, walked and viewed all the beautiful brownstones on Prospect Park inBrooklyn and had a lovely brunch (thank you, Rob) in Greenwich
Kate knows her mom only too well, so she walked us over from Penn Station to Mood Fabrics in the Garment District of Manhattan. Any Project Runway fans out there? This is where the contestants shop for fabric for their creations. Plenty of luscious textures, colors, embellishments and trims. I bought not a thing, but it was a dreamy experience to be surrounded by so much fabric!
Another great store which we nearly passed by, until the word Fiber caught my eye and dragged me toward it like a magnet, was Fibernotion on Union Street in Brooklyn. I don't think I've ever seen so many enticing needleart components in such a small space! I had fun buying hand painted wool roving, wool felt from Nepal, and a some nifty embellishments.
It's great to be back home, but we had an excellent time with our daughter. Today is her birthday and we send our dearest love to our wonderful Kate.
