City, Shopping & Sewing
Then I was in bead heaven, I think we spent a good 40 minutes in Yorkbeads. I purchased a few things, but had to really control myself. Look at that wall of beads. We continued walking and checking out various stores and ended up at 28th Street, but the hustlers quickly gave us reason to move right along...lol. So we jumped on the train to Little Italyand decided we would have lunch at Ferrara Cafe
Talk about ummm umm finger lickin good pastries... 2df!! You know I had to have cannoli... actually our lunch consisted of nothing but pastries...lol
Before heading to Queens we stopped at N.Y. Fabric Warehouse (406 Broadway, NYC 10013) which is a small shop packed floor to ceiling with fabric. It definitely could've used better lighting, but the young lady was so helpful, pulling the bolts out and schlepping them as far as to just outside the shop for a better look. They had some lovely suiting fabric and again I refrained from spending buck wild and just settled for 3 pieces:
and this one, the pic doesn't do it any justice, but a lovely blue/lt. blue argyle
We ended our day by having dinner at Mardi Gras Cajun Creole Rest. OmGoodness I had the best dish, which was Salmon with mussels, clams, shrimps & calamari in a cilantro sauce & rice.
I had the audacity to attempt more shopping in Forest Hills, which had a few shops and browsed them quickly realizing I was too tired to continue shopping and dragged myself into the house at 10:00pm... Talk about a long day!
Only thing that remains for this blouse are the snaps and will search for the tutorial on covered snaps and lastly hem the sleeves.
Until then... have a fab Week!
