It's so good to be home! I spent the better part of this past week in Hong Kong--my first time there. I've been to a lot of places around the world, and Hong Kong has not made my list of faves. My eyes are sore from the pollution, I watched frogs being served up at dinner (while they were still twitching, mind you!) and the full brunt of consumerist society sitting on top of a city and population that must be truly blinded by it. All of it, except maybe the hotel breakfast, made me truly uncomfortable. My own bed has never felt so good!
I even went looking for fabric one night. I found literally dozens of shop fronts showcasing their wares, although most fell more into the clothing / home dec / bedding categories. I just couldn't get on board, and walked away with nothing. However, when I got home, a lovely package from Intrepid Thread was waiting for me. This is about nine yards of Art Gallery Pure Elements Linen White which means I can finally start on my commissioned AMH feathers quilt! The Linen White is a close match to Kona Snow, but takes the level of luxe to new heights! Fire up the sewing machine, because it's time to get busy!
