Thank goodness for Mcdonalds annual technology persons conference. Had the opportunity to take a mini vacation to Chicago area with my hubby as a tag along. Technically we were in a suburb about 45 minutes outside of the city, but I made it into Chicago proper twice.
Once to fabric shop, went to Textile Discount Outlet for a day trip. It was an enormous store, room after room after room of fabrics and trims and I don't know what else. I was a little disappointed in the selection of knits, most of them felt like 100% synthetic. But I did manage to find these gems, over 15 yards of fabric for under $70. I have big plans for most of these, the pink camo in particular will become leggings for when we go to Northern Florida this fall.
Then again when we played tourist downtown, where we saw Willis Tower…
And even went to the top!
Later we went to a White Sox game, Sox won!
The sock even got in on the baseball action, I like to think we helped the Sox win.
This afternoon however, our fun had come to an end and it was time to fly back home. The new fabrics are in the wash, and the planning has begun to decide what they will become. TTFN
