Not a baseball fan, let alone the Yankees. Sometimes you have to do stuff for your husband.
Hello NYC, so far you have been a great city. The pilot did make some sharp turns over your harbor and took two attempts to land, but I did enjoy the entire city from your aerial view.
To kill time yesterday I ventured into a thrift store in Brooklyn, Beacon’s Closet. There was a wonderful eclectic mix of styles and eras in this store. I was in awe of the peope there as well.
In the dress section I did stumble upon a wedding dress. It had lots of lace that could have easily been removed and used for other projects. I really thought about it, but it would have taken up most of my spare carry on.
I did get lots of ideas for patterns and color usage.
Now it is time to do something very New York…attend a Yankees game. Woohoo! That is full of sarcasm since baseball is not my favorite sport. Oh well, it is America’s pasttime and it’s patriotic.
Friday we leave for NYC. I haven’t been there in about three years. On tap for the weekend is the following:
I’m off to NYC in a few weeks. We are visiting our friends that recently moved to Park Slope Brooklyn.
Do any of you have recommendations where I can go to check out new fabric? I’ve gotta think that NYC may have more to offer than Indy.
I know we are hitting a Yankees game and the Brooklyn Brewery. We love craft beer so that part of the trip sounds way more fun than a Yankees game. If you knew me, you would know I do not watch baseball and despise the Yankees. However, my husband LOVES them. He’s from upstate NY and that’s his team since was a kid. Most of his friends were not aware of my dislike and were quite shocked when I revealed it. They were surprised because in our house is an entire wall dedicated to the Yankees. Hey, I get a sewing room, his Yankees can have something. As a kid he collected baseball player’s signatures and even has a few cherished one. How can I say no to that?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!
