Older and Richer in Fabric

Well I am back from my fabulous trip to celebrate (?) my 40th birthday in New York and Bermuda.

As you will know by now I met up with Carolyn, LindsayT and Elizabeth in the garment district for a spot of fabric shopping. The time passed all too quickly but it was fun and frankly it probably would have been dangerous for the wallet and my suitcase packing skills if we had had any more time.


I will show you my purchases in a separate post but let me tell you the walk back from the garment district to my hotel felt a lot longer than on the way there.....


A few more pics;

Oops, looking like I am being stabbed in the head by the famous garment district needle.


Historical Dockyard in Bermuda wearing the much worn Burda 02/2009-124 dress which really will fall apart soon.


One of Bermuda's beautiful beaches - freezing water though!


On our hotel balcony before going out for my birthday - in the one dot dress from my last post!

Fabulous celebration for your 40th! And I love your "one dot" dress. I've had my version cut out for three weeks now and when I finally get to sewing I hope it looks as good as yours.

Oooh, fabulous birthday trip! I can't believe the water in Bermuda was cold! That totally defeats the purpose!
