I am now the proud bearer of the NYCMetro Mod coat of arms. I get to wear this genteel jacket wherever I want for the next month and my first stop was lunch after today's meeting. Wanted to grab a bite at Becco, but no tables were available. After being turned away at several other lovely spots, ended up at the 8th Avenue Shake Shack. The line was out the door and down the street in front of The Gentlemen's some kinda club. Not to worry, no one dared to make a pass at the wearer of this coat-of-arms!
I made these little 6" Elm Creek blocks a while ago with a focus group at Empire Guild. They are from "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" book. The 2-color combo of burgundy & cream did not work in many of the blocks, so I added a bow tie (a favorite of mine) and some hexies. Now to find some more blocks that are 2-color friendly. Can hardly wait to get the new Red & White book which I hear is coming soon!
