On Saturday, I went to the NY Metro Modern Quilt Guild meeting. I hadn't been there in over a year so it was good to see old friends and meet new ones. Victoria Findlay-Wolfe, president of the group, has been writing a book based on her blog, 15 Minutes of Play (she has a few blogs). She has announced (so I can, too) that her book is coming out from C&T in the Fall. I can't wait to see it and I will certainly review it on this blog as well as on the North Jersey Modern Quilt blog.
After the meeting, we headed out to Williamsburg, Brooklyn - home of trendy restaurants (isn't all of Brooklyn these days?) and a food event called Smorgasburg, which happens every Saturday. Dozens of food vendors assemble and you can work your way around, tasting cuisines from many countries. I headed for the pupusas, which were fabulous and honestly better than the ones I have had at my local Salvadoran restaurant. Here is a good view of the venue.
And some street art whose artist has a sense of humor. Can you read it??
All in all, another joyful day in NY!
