Hello friends! Sorry for having been missing for a while..I have been busy driving along the U.S. West Coast from L.A. to San Diego ...Las Vegas...Grand Canyon..and now back to L.A. again. How do I miss all of my blogging friends and posting the updates on my blog. Today I dropped my students off at the Six Flags (amusement park) so I have some free time for myself to get on the computer..yeah!
I know I am posting my Typography Challenge Entry later than the deadline but Rikka @ Richochet and Away and Keren @ Sew La Vie,the co-hosts of the challenge, are very kind to let me enter my challenge. Thank you very much! :)
Here are the challenge guidelines:
PROJECT: Home decor, i.e. curtains, wall art, bedding, place mats, etc.
THE KICKER: Use letters/numbers/symbols in your design (what you'd find on a keyboard)
VOTING: A Polldaddy poll will be set up to determine the winner.
PRIZES: Winner(s) will receive bragging rights and a chic button!
My Entry is "The P.S. I Love You" Bag. Thanks to Pam @ Threading My Way for suggesting that I asked if this bag would be qualified for the entry because I was extremely busy before my trip and did not have time to finish the planned project...and Rikka said yes! :)
Please check out the button link above..the voting is opened until the end of April. :)
On another note, while waiting for my students today...I hunted down a fabric shop in L.A. that I had been putting on my U.S. visit to-do list...after getting lost and stuck in traffic I finally found this lovely shop called "Sew Modern"
This is the label on the bag..I thought it's just so cute :)
This is what the front of the shop looks like..I was really happy to be in the store.
They do have great fabric deals too.
some bargain bins :)
And here are my selections (I bought them to share with my friends when I go back home too)
And finally, the Swoon quilt pattern that I've always wanted
The prices are much cheaper than if I bought in Thailand with saving on shipping..so that was my excuse to shop ;)
Well..that's all for now..I will try to post an update again soon..may be the pictures of the trip. Until then..I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.
