After the museum yesterday, our guide took us to the fabric market. Oh heaven! Stall after stall after stall of home dec, China silk, linen, cottons, and more.
Yes, Katie is sitting backwards on the sun shade, holding the stroller handle. When in Rome...!
Our guide offered to go pick up McD's for lunch while I shopped. Fine, fine, go. Just let me fondle.
Aren't they pretty?
I was very good. I only picked up 4 1 meter cuts. The background of this is navy, sorry for the poor lighting on these iPad pics.
This is pale lavender with embroidery. Will make a cute sundress or peasant top for one of the girls.
This was my "haggle by calculator" piece. I asked how much, and she grabbed her calculator and typed 55 and said 1 meter. I shook my head and waved my hand. She hit clear and held the calculator out to me with a raised brow. I typed 35. She hit clear and typed 45. I hit clear and typed 40, and we grin Ed at each other. It was in the cotton section, but it is very drapey, and I'm wondering if it's really rayon. Might make a cute skirt for Brianna.
This one made me smile. It just looks like it could be a faux boutique foo foo outfit. With bows. And maybe even some ric rac. Not sure exactly what it will look like yet, but it will come to me.
The guide came back, and he and Paul sat on a bench and fed lunch to the babies while I shopped. When they (and I'll let you interpret that word however you like) started losing it, I decided I could be done, even though I could have stayed there for hours.
Erin, this shot is for you. I didn't buy any, but it reminded me of you.
