– 164 – postcards from New York

… delicious brunch at The Cupping Room Cafe in Soho… blueberry pancakes drenched in maple syrup… so so good… (I was going to say drizzled, but it would have been a lie, I drowned them in the stuff!).

Why Soho?  Because I had booked a punch needle workshop at Purl Soho ran by the lovely Rose Pearlman.

It was great, I learned loads and came back full of ideas… I would show you what I did… if I hadn’t ripped it all off this morning at 5.45am when totally awake with jet lag and Mr M was snoring in the bedroom and the boys were asleep and it was raining outside and I was bored out of my mind, so I sat on the toilette and started again…

Yeah.

Jet lag is a beast, but punch needle is amazing and you should all try it.  So nothing much to show you a part from the famous Purl Soho wheel quilt:

  1. Oh my gosh–I just looked up Rose Pearlman–her work is so gorgeous! I’d never heard of punch needle before but now I really want to try it! Thank you so much as always for sharing your postcards–my chance to travel vicariously!–and I hope the jet lag abates soon–it is terrible coming back this way. K xx
