Who's Tripping Down The Streets of The City?

Everyone knows it's Windy!
I said I would talk about my friend, Windy, coming to visit.  
She drove 2.5hours just to go out to lunch with me and go shopping.  
Now THAT's a friend!

She picked me up at work and we drove to Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, for lunch. 
 Zingerman's is an institution.  
The food is fantastic, but a little pricey. 
 I bought our lunch since she drove all the way to see me!

Number 13, Serman's Sure Choice, my all time favorite!

While on her travels, Windy came upon some Lizzy Dish fabric.  
She knows how much I love this line so she texted me and then brought it to me at our visit!

We went to Treasure Mart, a local thrift shop but the big excitement was going to Pink Castle Fabrics.

I knew I wanted to pick up a few of the prints in the Whisper Pallette by Lizzy House.
I was especially interested in the ghosts, mice and swans.  
Particularly the swans.  
I love it even more in person than I did in the photos of it!  
I also got the beautiful teal to make the School House tunic in.  
I am waiting not so patiently, for the tracing paper to arrive so I can try making one.

These were in the FQ bin and...resistance was futile!

All In all it was a great day and I loved spending time with my friend.
Little did I know that my Instagram friend would turn into one of my best IRL friends!
The internets (all of them) has made this world so much smaller.

Happy Caturday from this silly girl and me!

I hope you get a chance to enjoy your friends this weekend.
