Adrift in a sea of textiles.

Last weekend we went back to my daughter's house and I stayed with her and her sweet new baby while her husband and mine went on a men's retreat that involved fishing. I got in some great "baby" time, and if that wasn't enough of a treat, she took me to the L.A. fashion district in downtown L.A. Wow! What a place. We had limited time...one baby nap worth to be exact, which was a little over two hours. He was so cute sleeping in the Moby wrap.

I only bought one little piece of fabric at a $2 per pound fabric store. Now that I know what is there...every fabric, trim, bauble, button, etc., etc. you can imagine... I will definitely have some projects in mind if I ever get a chance to go back. As it was, I was too overwhelmed to have any creative thoughts.




There are blocks and blocks of stores. Lots of stimulating color and texture.




We really had fun taking pictures, passing the camera back and forth.






This store with crowns and tiaras made me think of our friend Vallen who loves making crowns.





This photo that Raya took is one of my favorites.
