lucky me, i got to tag along with katie and visit the pink chalk fabrics headquarters the other week (talk about mind blogging, i thought i wrote about this ages ago!).
before we invaded fabric mecca, though, we all met up to have lunch with melissa, who just had her darling baby girl. is it weird that even though i have a nine-month-old baby i am already nostalgic for the newborn days? she was so sweet she slept the entire time. sigh... newborns, amiright?
ingrid tagged along and even got into the spirit of fabric pulling. what a little helper she is.
i came away with the loveliest stack of fabrics. i finally found something i like enough to back this long-unfinished quilt (and, oh no! i just noticed that it's now been over a year since i finished that quilt top). and we got to raid kathy's scrap bins which she sold to us at the most amazing price. there are some seriously lovely treasures in there, not to mention that her "scraps" are often quarter- or half-yard cuts.
and it was such a delight to meet kathy in person, who is just as nice as you would imagine. she didn't seem to mind at all the fact that four fabric-crazed ladies and one baby were turning her beautiful workroom upside down. it's always heartening to know that there are good people behind the shops you love to order from. thanks, kathy!
