I've been back one full week from my SE Asia trip and today was the first opportunity for me to hit up Happy Quilt. To my *extremely* pleasant surprise I found the new Bryant Park collection from Khristian Howell in the stacks and stacks of fabric. I picked up all the prints I could find in my favorite color combination. I bought more than enough fabric for a king size quilt and some other smaller projects, I can't wait to use these fabrics! Also available were new Vera Bradley prints, my favorite is "Sittin' in a Tree".

On the sewing projects front: I am going to re-focus my energy on perfecting some samples of pointed collar corners and sleeve plackets. I want to add to my portfolio and these smaller projects won't need too many sewing tools, which is a good thing because I need to start packing up for our move in May. Have I said how much I am going to miss living in Korea?
I still have one blog entry to write about my fabric shopping experience in Cambodia. Unfortunately being in Vietnam during Tet put a large damper on most of my shopping. China was kind of a big bust too but I knew the areas where I was staying were lackluster in the textile arena. I am trying to get to Shanghai/Hangzhou/Suzhou in April, I expect to be much luckier bringing silks from these areas back with me.
