Sunday Salon

I've been busy! New York does have a lot to offer and I've been trying to get out more.

A lock from the Mossman Lock Museum
Some highlights of the past few weeks include
  • a visit to the Mossman Lock Museum, a collection of locks at the Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of NYC,
  • eating at the iconic Russ & Daughters cafe and deli,
  • two traumatic and painful medical appointments (I'm fine, just routine stuff),
  • a quilt show in Brooklyn and a quilt guild meeting in Hell's Kitchen,
  • Macy's flower show, 
  • several movies,
  • two book club meetings and
  • finishing a quilt.
So there's all that. And I've been reading up a storm, and sewing lots too. I made a new purse for spring with some upholstery fabric someone left at the take-it-or-leave-it table at the guild meeting and I'm trying something called a New York Beauty block, a complex design that I've never done before, but I think it's time to push myself to try more difficult patterns.

Today we're going to try to get to a movie and maybe do some poking around in Soho.  I think my husband may have been spoiled by the magnificent Russ & Daughters bagels and I may be obligated to go back for more.

This week actually looks to be pretty quiet. I have an acupuncture appointment on Tuesday and a book club meeting at the end of the week. We'll see how it goes!
