pigeons and purl


I'm finally getting around to posting more pics from my trip to New York a couple of weeks ago. Since we returned, it's been crazy (both good and bad), so it's taken me longer than I thought it would to go through the few hundred photos that I took. While I was in NYC, I stopped at Purl Soho.



I have dreamed about that place and it's just as gorgeous in real life as it was in my head. It was so tempting to buy lots of things, but being on a bit of a fabric budget, I only indulged in one of their fabulous scrap packs.











So much inspiration! Seriously, inspiration was everywhere in that store.



And speaking of inspiration, I loved all the pigeons I saw in NYC. Of course, we have them here in Ohio, but there was just something about these birds.



I love how iridescent their feathers look in the sunlight.





And now I want to do a series of pigeon paintings. Hmmm...now to find a few more hours in the day to get them done!

I bet the trip to Purl was just fun. I'm not a fan of NYC (too big city for me), but I would love to visit that shop.
