Loved that book and am looking for more on Frank Lloyd Wright but this time with more about his architecture and less about his crazy life; any suggestions?
Once I got to Columbus, in between work meetings I made stops at two of my favorite spots in C-bus- Jeni's and Sew to Speak! (check out this post for more on the area)
On my way to Jeni's in Short North (I looooooove that area) I found a new mural that I hadn't seen before.
The ice cream at Jeni's was ridiculously good- Sweet Corn and Black Raspberry. I know- sounds kooky but seriously SOOOOO good; try it if you're in the neighborhood. :)
MUCH RESTRAINT!!! Lord have mercy, I deserve a freaking medal for not buying that whole dang shop. Seriously, they have such a great selection of crafty items it'll make you want to slap your mama.
I ended up with some great prints by Amy Butler (remember when Sew to Speak hosted homegirl for the evening?), Anna Maria Horner and Art Gallery + just about the best embroidery book ever put out. When I got home, I noticed the cutest little line on Sew to Speak's receipt:
|It reads "thanks! now go home and SEW and then come back!"|
My plans for all of the fabric except for the Amy Butler Cameo print is to make infinity scarves; I've made one so far and- added bonus- it matches my coffee mug at the office!
I plan on backing the Anna Maria Horner and Art Gallery cotton fabrics in the pink voile above for bulkier, longer infinity scarves that I'll wear the crap out of this fall. (Klassy, no?) The Cameo colors match my kitchen perfectly so I'm thinking I'll use it to embellish some tea towels (like this) and make some potholders too.
There you go, folks- books, ice cream and fabric. Seriously, I'm like freaking Santa Clause up in here. :)
