There are exciting things happening this weekend, but sadly no berry picking (which is always what I wish I was doing on summer weekends). Tonight skywalker and I are baking strawberry shortbread bars (our standard go to easy to make dessert) and these. I can't wait for some batter of both things. Tomorrow, the LAMQG is having a field trip to Michael Levine in Downtown Los Angeles' Fabric District. I have yet to visit Michael Levine, despite my love of fabric, sewing and such, because as much as I love fabric I hate driving anywhere in downtown Los Angeles (yes this is partially because of stupid traffic tickets), and I'm even a native Los Angeleno. Also, I worry about my self control in a store that has so much of what I love all in one place. I better come up with an acceptable budget before the trip. Our group gets a discount that day, which is pretty cool and we are getting a behind the scenes tour, which is also cool. I am bringing my camera, because I never do, to LAMQG events, and I want some pictures of my own. Whether or not this happens, who knows.
What I am hoping to see most at Michael Levine is some Castle Peeps (pics below), because I want all of it, and I have ever since I first saw pics. It is just now available online, so who knows if they will have it tomorrow (I'll order next week if it is unavailable). You know why I love it so much, because it reminds me of the animated version of Sleeping Beauty, which is one of my favorites. Check out this picture and tell me you don't see the similarity. I have to dream up a quit worthy of these fabrics and then figure out a way to live in said quilt. One more project to add my my ever growing to do list.
