philly is a foodie town, a serious foodie town. and we go there as much as possible, usually making our plans around seeing friends and eating. the suburbs where we live are a different story. it's a dining wasteland. there are mediocre places, but none too great. within the past year a vietnamese place opened, pho and beyond, and we have been going ever since. it is seriously FANTASTIC. here's a picture of their cabbage soup, which has the most amazing broth ever.

i had been keeping this bag around (from my trip to the amazing terrain), because it was too pretty to throw away. today i noticed that it was falling apart so i was just about to put it in the recycling, when i had the idea to cut it up to use as tags. i planned to go to the craft store today to buy some, so this saved me a trip, and recycled something that would have been in the trash.
while cutting up the bag, i noticed this, which i thought was appropriate :-)
and why, you may ask, do i need tags? because i'm doing my first show! i'm super excited about it and nervous at the same time. i'll be at the clover market in ardmore, pa on october 10, 11-4. you can check out lots of details about the market here. hope to see you there!

here's a sneak peak of a new throw size quilt i'm working on. here's what i started with, then edited and added fabrics as it evolved. the center and inspiration for the quilt is a vintage lily of the valley kitchen towel that i picked up at a flea market. it's a beaut.
