My trip to New York




I'm home from my trip to New York. I went to stay with Victoria and spend the weekend sewing. We had a fantastic time! Victoria is absolutely the "hostess with the mostess". So that being said I thought I'd share a few things about my friend that you may or may not know. First of all, she lives in a loft in New York City and it is incredible! Her husband, Micheal is also fabulous. He is very charming with a slight British accent and the man can tell a good story. They make a very cute couple. Victoria's daughter "B" is a great kid. She is smart, creative, interesting, beautiful and precocious, definitely her Momma's daughter.
And now for Victoria herself, she is tall, thin, and beautiful and as great as she looks on the outside she is even more fabulous on the inside. We had more fun than the law should allow. Andrea came over and we sewed and ate and chit-chatted and then we realized something was missing, shopping. So off we went to The City Quilter, where we each made a fabric purchase and then we went back to V's and sewed some more. (Definitely some of the most fun you can have with your clothes on.) And amid all this sewing we did manage tiny bit of sight seeing, (this was my first time in New York.) Here we are in Central Park. Don't we look like we're having fun?
Thank you again Victoria for a fabulous weekend. I'll see you in three weeks in Houston, my friend. Yipee!!!! Happy sewing!!!

Geez, Louise! I am blushing every shade of batik red! Girlie, we sure did have a great time. You inspired me to be more patient in machine quilting, and enforced the never say never theory! Although I am sticking to the fact that I will never applique a cow. he he!
Can't wait for Houston, and ooh! I looked up the tokyo internationl, its in Jan, over MLK weekend... hmmmmm, maybe a trip to japan maybe in the works too. B would be up for that! see you soon! hugs!

Looks and sounds like a great time. What better person to show you NYC and host for a quilting bee. I too was at the City Quilter as we past through NYC in August but alas, Victoria was still out of town. I'm envious. Love your blocks for our upcoming charity quilt.
