Wow! Monday was my birthday and look where I am. My sweet hubby invited me to accompany him on a quick business trip to New York and I spent yesterday at Mood Fabrics.
In addition to striking up a new friendship with Swatch, the Mood Fabrics dog, I met two of my favorite sewing bloggers, Oonaballoona and Marina from Frabjous Couture. I met Eric, one of the owners of Mood, and I met Joe, an employee who was immensely helpful.
I also took l o t s of pictures of my Mood experience……the fabrics, the accessories and most importantly the lovely people I met.
While Oonaballoona was snapping a photo of me with Joe, would you believe my camera leaped out of her hands, jumped on the floor and broke itself?
I promise that curvy specimen of the clan balloona, who sews, drinks, plays, curses, creates, and generally has an excellent time was behaving herself. The accident was entirely the camera’s fault, and I’m left with two blurry iPhone pictures to share with you, the one above and this one.
She feels just horrible about the camera incident but isn’t that a cute shirt she made! (blogged here.)
So… what would have been a post about my lovely trip has now turned into the story of a broken camera and one of those had-to-be-there moments.
Beautiful fabric is on the way to South Carolina, and I plan to share lots of sewing projects with you soon. Maybe I’ll even have a new camera!
Best wishes to all
