trip to NY

Ben and I went down to NY on the Megabus.  Wifi, a table- I swear, the light was better then in my studio. I’d prepared some projects to work on during the way down (about 4 hours). Coming home was crowded and we didn’t get the table, but really, it is a very relaxing way to get to NY.

I went to an opening party at the new Purl location. Yes, it is amazing.

The display window-

The felt- love it!

btw- they have bolts of felt at the store if you are looking for larger amounts.

Color is all at Purl. It is intoxicating. Even the refreshments were beautiful!

Going back to the hotel- all the lights at night-

We stayed down by Wall Street and the hole in the ground that was the World Trade Center. This promenade was just a few blocks from the hotel. Lovely. The weather was perfect which I must say is a unique experience for me in NY- usually we are there in pouring rain, no matter what the season!

On Friday we went to the Museum of the City of New York and saw a show of Chas Addams artwork.

But really, let’s get back to the party. I met Heather Ross (yes, I gushed and told her I was a big fan),  Liesl and Tamar Mogendorff. Diana Eng was there but I didn’t have a chance embarrass myself with her- I would have told her that I stopped watching Project Runway after they bumped her… but probably, that would have been weird. There was a big crowd and I can’t even say how thrilled I was to be there.

Tomorrow I will post some crafty aspects of the trip, but that’s enough for now.

  1. Gosh! What a trip! The new Purl Bee looks stunning, those bolts of felt so scrummy. I don’t hold with sang-froid approach when meeting heroes. Gush away! Be starstruck! Punctuate your life with exclamation points! Life is too short. :)

  2. I was in NY last Sunday and thanks to you and Salley M. on my way to an open house/art exhibtion (my raison ‘etre) I stopped at PURL because
    I couldn’t NOT go there, being so close. Barely escaped with my VISA intact ;-) But now I know here it is, can say I’ve been there and feel much better for it.

  3. this looks amazing! i’ve got to get to purl! this megabus – do you recommend it? are the prices really that cheap?
