Afternoon Delight - Part Deux

Okay I knew Monday afternoon that I would be back at Kashi's this afternoon.  I'd been conversating with Omega about her trip to NJ/NY and we had agreed to meet there.  It was just coincidence that I ended up there twice in one week...

First the obligatory Kashi photo:

Kashi, me, Omega, Altheia and Sheila

I found out earlier this week that Sheila would be joining us too...and I'd had such a good time with her during PR Weekend that I was sooooo glad to see her again.  She was just as amazing a fabric shopper in Kashi's as she was in Jomars!

So when I got there...having come from my day job...Omega and Altheia already had made quite large piles! There was some serious fabric shopping going on here folks!  Remember I was just there on Monday and they found stuff that I hadn't seen then!  I know they took some pics of the fabric combinations that they put together and I hope Omega posts them because she bought the most fabulous orange silk crepe...wait I have to take a moment and catch my breathe because that piece was so damn fine!

Then we talked Sheila into this gorgeous silk...girl you better use that piece just like you imagined...hold onto it until you find the perfect lace for it!  So you would think that after all that fun that I would take myself back to work right?  Nope, I took them over to Daytona Trimmings (you know of Project Runway fame) and got them settled before I went back to work.

Altheia, me and Omega

Ladies, I had a fabulous time and almost called my job and told them I wasn't coming back!  *LOL*  Thank you for bringing a bright spot to a week that was ending badly!

  11. You all look fabulous and like you are having a great time. I am so jealous of all you cool girls who work in the city and can take mini-vacations in the middle of the day to go fabric shopping.

  13. sounds like fun was had by all. On a different subject; I'm old and the white on black is challenging to the eyes - any chance of a change?
