It's a wonder that all of us living in the northeast U.S. aren't green and molding, with all the rain we've had lately. So much rain, in fact, that I wasn't able to take photos of the adorable town of Narberth, PA, where Cloth and Bobbin is located and where I taught a Birthday Party Dress workshop on Saturday.
The shop is almost directly across the street from the train station, which made our commute fantastically easy despite the deluge. I adore large cities and the many transportation alternatives they offer: Todd, Tsia and I took the Bolt bus from NYC to Philly, and then Septa (the commuter line) to Narberth. Nearly door-to-door service and we could nap, read, and relax the entire trip instead of watching the road. So inexpensive, too! You would be shocked.
Anyway, no photos of the store or the class, I'm afraid. But eight adorable Birthday Party dresses will soon be finished, and we all had a good time making them.
I did managed to photograph this little surprise, which Johanna specially ordered from Whipped Bakeshop for the class. Isn't it stunning? And let me tell you, it was delicious, too. Tsia was excited to eat her own head. Please tell me that's normal.
I have just one photo of Philly for you, taken out of pure joy that the rain had stopped (momentarily, I assure you) once we emerged from our train on our way to the hotel.
And for some reason I focused on signs during this trip. Here are a few favorites:
After a few hours at the Philly Art Museum on Sunday (No, we didn't do the Rocky thing on the front steps, sorry), it was time to head home again. Thanks for a fun visit, Johanna and friends!
