You will say: "Pat, you just came back from Paris... why are you blogging about London?" It's so true!! Everything still is very messy on this blog, so I have to catch up, lol. So my problem now is that I want to post all I have at the same time!
After coming back from London in July, I had so much work ahead of me in preparation for Houston Quilt Market (new collection, design for the booth, plus a few shootings and making several new patterns) On top of that I didn't decide if I was going to make my own new blog... so with all these things going on I said maybe is not the right time to post on my old blog.
But sometimes the excitement is stronger that you might think... do you know that feeling? :) I had these beautiful pictures from London waiting and telling me: "when are you going to show us?" A few weeks ago I posted my first post from that visit, but I had many more pics -and specially a group that had me drooling since I took them! LIBERTY of LONDON!
I said to Walter: "I may want to live here for the rest of my life"!! There is SO much inspiration here that I think you may agree with me :)
|They have an entire floor dedicated to cards, cards and more cards!|
|Believe me when I tell you I wanted to buy... EVERYTHING!|
|The buttons were so many that you didn't know where to start looking...|
|A world of wallpapers in the most stunning designs|
|Over the department of sewing notions, I kept saying myself "1 of each, please!"|
I asked one of the salespeople there if I could take pictures, since I was a textile designer from US and wanted to share all this yumminess with the sewists here. She gladly say yes!
|Isn't this the cutest packaging for buttons?|
|Lovely quilt, fabric bundles and so many books that are to die for!|
|Look at these tiny beading bottles... don't you want to buy them all? I do!|
|Everything in this store is devoted to floral design|
|The most beautiful displays!|
|The cosmetics department is also an entire floor and you can smell all fragrances you can think of...|
After a few hours lost in that paradise I knew I have to leave the store before I could break the limit on my credit card, lol... but I would never forget the experience!
It was so very inspiring for me as a sewist and as a designer. I came back full of ideas for my next collections! What's not to love about Liberty of London, don't you think?
