Can you take one more Metro Textiles post?

See Karen, Elaray, Elizabeth and I actually had this trip to Metro Textiles planned before the Fabu Ms. EricaB blew into town...so I hope I don't bore you with one more Metro Textiles trip...

Suffice it to say that Kashi was wonderful as usual...and I was late...as usual! Elizabeth and Karen were already there making piles by the time I arrived...sorry to say that Elaray had to work and couldn't make it...and I almost didn't make it...that darn job! *LOL* But since it pays my fabric bills and the financial industry is on its knees in NYC, I should be very grateful I have a job...

Okay enough of that...I walk through the door and my dear Kashi is all smiles. But off to the side I hear this, "ohmygosh, it can't be you!" Excuse me? Karen knows me sooooo what's that all about?! It's Lorraine from San Antonio, TX. She just happened to be visiting NYC with her parents & sister and was in Metro at the same time as Karen & Elizabeth. Here is a pic of the four of us:

Lorraine, Elizabeth, Karen (in her swim dress), me & Kashi

I had to leave before Elizabeth and Karen were done shopping...that darn job again...but a few pics of us together and with Kashi, the wonder man!

By the way Erica, he said that your video has caused quite a stir! He has had more calls from people saying they saw your video on the internet...


Oh and this time I didn't make it out empty handed...this followed me home!


Brown/black print cotton, black eyelet & blue/green border print

Please, please, please don't call me Marji...I KNOW!!!!! *LOL* And Renee, the black seersucker should show up at your house by the weekend!

  6. OMG - I 'made the pilgrimage' to Mr. Kashi last month(on what was, I think the hottest day I have ever experienced in NY - I think it was 100 degrees that day..I thought my head was going to melt a la the Nazi guy in "Raiders of the Lost Ark")and I came away with just the most incredible stuff. I should have asked Kashi to ship it to me but instead, I wandered around like some sort of beast of burden in that heat - and ended up not being able to run all of my errands because of it. I had to hit the subway to get to the Port Authority just to get inside some AC. But no trip to NY is complete without taking your shopping list to Metro!!

  10. I never tire of seeing pics of Metro and Kashi. Although I can feel the jealousy rise up every time I do! Love your new haul, enjoy!

  13. Hi Carolyn:

    It was a pleasure meeting you and the ladies that day! It was funny though my family and I had been at the store for maybe ten minutes. Then I saw a familiar looking dress and I was like "Is it she? OMG, it is. Carolyn, omg" hahahaha. And as you can see I'm big on hugs. lol

    ....so you bought that border print fabric too? lol, it's pretty, I agree. I didn't get to see your fabric purchases because I left before you guys. I'd be fun to see what each of us makes with the same fabric. :):):):)

    LOL, I've been sightseeing, not just fabric shopping. I went to the museum of modern art, and the museum of natural history today. And I can't leave NYC without riding a bike in Central Park. :):):)

    I think in the commotion of omg it's carolyn I probably didn't speak right, my name's Lorraine. lol, what can I say I was a little star struck, and happy. It's a small world, and meeting you ladies just proved it.

    To all of those that read this blog I want to say that I'm not pregnant (despite the fact that I may look like that in the picture). I was actually asked "When's the baby due?" by a lady at another fabric shop. Much to her surprise I said "I'm not pregnant, I've just gained some weight recently and the dress doesn't do me justice either". lol, so there.

    OK, enough rambling on in someone else's blog. LOL

    Again, it was a pleasure meeting all of you and I hope next time I'm in NYC on vacation I may see you again at Mr. Kashi's. :):):):)

    Hugs,
    Lory

  15. Is it strange that the photos with all that fabric behind you makes my mouth water?

  16. I love that brown and black print so much that I decided one length wasn't enough; I went back for seconds a couple of months ago. We could start a club.... -karla
