My quilting buddy Jeanne and I went on a field trip today. We live across the Bay from the city of San Francisco. My DIL gave me a gift certificate to Britex Fabrics at Christmas so Jeanne and I scheduled a trip into the city to check it out. It was so much fun! It's not geared so much toward quilters and the fabrics there are pretty overpriced, but this piece of 100% silk had my name on it! It is stunningly gorgeous!!!
I found it on the fourth floor where they have the remnants. The ladies on the fourth floor are very nice. The other floors' employees were a bit snobbish for my taste. We started on the fourth floor and worked our way down. After we visited all the floors we went back up to the fourth floor and this is when I found this beauty.
I think I'll either make a blouse or a jacket out of it. Now I'm in search of the perfect pattern. There's only about 1 1/2 yards of it so it'll probably have to be a short sleeved blouse.
After shopping at Britex we went to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. Another first for me and it didn't dissapoint either! I had fish tacos. Yummy!!! Even though our lunch was more than filling we had to have cheesecake. It isn't called Cheesecake Factory for nothing! Jeanne and I shared a slice. There are so many kinds of cheesecake to choose from it made it difficult to pick one. We chose something with lemon and raspberry sauce. It was delicious!
On the way back to BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) we stopped in at the Ghirardelli shop. Such a fun day and perfect weather to boot. We'll have to schedule more field trips in the future!!!
