Another Day in NYC

I participated in the HOE Snowman Exchange and was elated when I opened the package that arrived from Anne.  Inside I found this beautifully stitched and finished ornament:
2011 HOE Snowman Ornament
Designer: Little House Needleworks
Design: Frosty Flakes
Stitched by: Anne S.

As a fan of Little House Needleworks, I was so happy to receive a stitched design from their Ornament of the Month.  Thank you very much Anne, I look forward to hanging the ornament on my tree each Christmas!
This is what I stitched for my partner, Marie W.

Designer: Lorrie Birmingham
Design: Snowmen Trio
Stitched for: Marie W.

Now that I am in the Northeast, I am able to see my DS more frequently.  A few weeks ago, I headed into NYC for another day in the city with my oldest son.  He is so sweet; once again, he toured me around the city visiting Bryant Park, Central Park, the Garment district and Times Square. 

One of my favorite places is Bryant Park.  This is the perfect place to grab some lunch, relax in the park and enjoy the beautiful weather.


After a bit of a rest we headed to Central Park where we strolled through the park enjoying the sights. I especially enjoy seeing the horse and carriages parading down the streets of the city.



For me, a trip to NYC would never be complete without a visit to the Garment District.  Oh, to bask in the glory of all of this gorgeous trim...in every imaginable color!


Here is a picture of my latest trim purchase.  I feel so spoiled to have a son living in NYC affording me the opportunity to walk the streets of the garment district frequently.



As we wrapped up our day in the city, we approached Times Square and saw this friendly guy:

THE TIN MAN IN TIMES SQUARE

As much as I dislike having my picture taken, I could not pass up on this opportunity. So there you have it...I am off to see the wizard!

Thanks "G" for another wonderful day hanging out in the city with you, I am one lucky Mom. :D


As always thank you for stopping by!

Until next time...

That trim shop looks wonderful :) I loved NYC when I visited on my own - how wonderful to have your own personal tour guide to find all the best places :D

Oh, I wish I'd been there with you, Marie. You look like such a "hot tamale" in your red sweater with the Tin Man...you guys could surely have been steppin' out!
So nice to stop by your blog to see what you've been up to. I'm off to LA to visit Jess and Kellan this weekend for a couple of weeks.
Hugs,
Deb

What cute exchange pieces!

How lucky for you to be able to live so close to New York City - I love New York, but it's very rarely that I get to take a trip there. It looks like you had a nice day out.
