One of my favorite blogs is Purl Bee, which shares loads of project ideas using fabrics, yarn and more found at the Purl Soho shop in NYC. I got to visit the shop on our recent vacation and am even more in love! I bought the wool felt used to make these citrus coasters, one of their recent tutorials. I spent the last day of my vacation with my feet up, watching the Royal Pains marathon and stitching away. *Bliss!* (They were out of the “spring” bundle, so I used summer and am happy enough with the result.) Even better, I have enough to keep a set and give one as a gift.
I took some pictures while I was there so you could have a little peek at the shop, too.
Such a gorgeous wall of yarns! I restrained myself and just bought one. (After all, I can order more later, right?)
I can’t decide if I want to make a wall of fabric hoops like this at home, or maybe mini quilts?
They sell a kit of rainbow fabrics if you’d like to make a color wheel quilt of your own.
I think I’ll be making this wreath, another of their tutorials.
I hope you find some inspiration there, whether you visit the shop or the blog!
