...and Out Like a Lamb...


I must be the only one in New York who wore a winter coat today, temp's going up to 60 and climbing over the week.  I figured yesterday would be my last March flower post (and the month would end with rain), but then these tulips came into the office.
I'm not usually an orange person, but this shade is really soft.  We also got some gerbera daisies and parrot tulips for a party last night, so I rescued the extras.  
We did a crazy kids' candy station
and chocolate fountain from Dylan's Candy Bar.
And at last I had some relaxing time to organize sewing stuff.
The little packet of fabric is from Purl Patchwork in Soho and the pieces are about 25" x 17" so I need to figure out what to make.  I'm starting to understand why people have such fabric stashes!  The only piece that's labeled is this cream, pink, orange print from Amy Butler.
And on April 15 the Purl yarn and fabric shops are moving in together and there's a fun customer appreciation day on Saturday the 24th.  They're also promising online surprises if you can't make it in person, so check out their Purl Bee blog.  I like this cute little map they made to show the new location on Broome Street, will definitely be making a trip over there soon.

Thanks for the info. I love that fabric too, they sale it near a shop by my work. I have been eyeing it, try to think of what it could become. Can't wait to see your ideas.

The cream, pink & orange fabric is beautiful! I have an upcoming project that requires fabric which is foreign to me. I hope we can go on another field trip to find some pretty fabric!
