I accomplished something long on my “New York To Do” list. I went to Mood (the designer fabric store featured prominently on Project Runway). The whole experience reminded me of the time my friend Liz and I were the biggest dorks ever (the year was 2008) and staked out the Project Runway fashion show in Bryant Park and saw our faves and Nina Garcia and then stalked Tim Gunn for a day. Anyway, I’ve stitched a lot of Christmas ornaments lately and I need to finish them–but finding trim and fabric is so difficult when one’s hobbies are those of old ladies. I decided to combine my love of Project Runway and my need for fabric/trim with one trip to the garment district on a Saturday morning. Well, as is expected, the store was hopping–and really, it is a designer fabric store, so I didn’t really find what I needed. I got a little trim but I still need some basic red backing! I did see some absolutely lovely fabric that would make divine pillows. But my tiny apartment does not need anymore pillows! Why is life so hard?!
