A couple days ago, I took a bus trip with a great art teacher and other art students from my girls' alma mater to New York City to visit the William Bennett Gallery and the Museum Of Modern Art.
just love the buildings....lol
It was an exhausting journey, but one filled with the joy of having some one on one time with my 22 year old daughter. She went away to college five years ago and while she did receive her college degree, she came home exhausted. This past year has been very stressful and difficult adjustment for her. There were times that I thought I had lost her forever. She and I were so close until she went away to college. I told her how much I admire and love her.
Price of bus fare:$150 Price of lunch: 60.00 Time spent with precious daughter - PRICELESS! pictures coming soon!!!
She had egg salad on chibata and I had the organic chicken, arugela ... what yummy walnuts. A glass of sparkling cider topped off my meal, while her pineapple mix was a shared affair...lol!

Do you have a favorite place to buy your fabric? art supplies? Over the years I've had favorite places to shop for my dressmaking fabrics and this year I headed right to the place for some silk swatches. The stores that once boast some wonderfully beautiful fabrics of silks and other fine dress fabrics are a thing of the past. I was shocked to find the stores filled with what looked like a basement explosion of some type. Gone are the quality dress fabrics. Not in just one store, but all the stores are filled with less than the best quality fabrics. It is so disappointing ... I'm having a really hard time adjusting to this reality.
Well, fortunately my favorite FABRIC shop and YARN shop were still there and still have wonderful, beautiful, and funky modern fabrics and yarns...
Pictures later....trouble with that camera again!!!!
