|Original artwork by my daughter|
While my daughter's artwork deserves more of a comment than this, I am just without words when I see her drawings now. So, I simply share this one with you. Again, she has blown me away.
When I have a moment to take a somewhat leisurely stroll through the garment district, I try to take a peek into the stores that aren't on my regular radar, just to see what's new/what's changed/what inspires...
So, on my way down to City Quilter yesterday (which has since closed) , I popped into Truemart, a store I had incorrectly written off as dying, due to the impossible avalanche of merchandise inside, and apparently incorrect rumors of its imminent demise.
While I would not say that it is a place to go when you have a list of things you are looking for, it is great for a "treasure hunt" excursion, when you have time and an open mind, especially now, since, due to less merchandise in the store, that terrible claustrophobic feeling I referred to in an earlier post has eased.
|Too tight of a space to capture a real photograph, this silk caught my eye.|
|This hoodie-esque fabric called out to me. It told me loudly what it wants to be.|
The prices are still quite fair, although not as fair as they once were. Still worth a visit!
