I was lucky enough to spend my summer holidays, whilst at university working at a wonderful summer camp in Maine and this year the camp had a big reunion. Luckily a few things fell into place and I was able to go. It was lovely to meet up with old friends, reminisce and also enjoy the beautiful surroundings of camp with my little girl.
We flew into New York and had a few days to sightsee and shop. One of the places that I’d read about and wanted to visit was the high line park and it just happened to be a 2 minute walk from our hotel.
It’s a wonderful city park which retains the character of the old railway but also has lots of interesting and quirky features as well as lush planting schemes to keep the visitor interested on their walk. It’s also wonderful to see the city from an elevated viewpoint.
One of the other places I wanted to visit was the Purl Soho as I’m often inspired by their tutorials and enjoy looking at their website. I was a little disappointed with their fabric selection which contained mostly liberty prints (fabrics I can easily find in the UK) and solids. My daughter on the other hand was smitten with their little dog soft toy. After carrying it gleefully around the shop we decided to buy the pattern and some fabric and make our own.
