Food for thought and Food to eat

I really enjoyed reading this post by Steph at 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World.  It is thought-provoking.  I heartily agree with her idea to ignore advertising (or at least notice how ridiculous it is)

And I ate some food today.  In New York City.  With these fine ladies...

Oh.It.Was.Fun!!
I'll post more when a little free time presents itself.
Everyone wore something she had sewn and, of course, everyone looked totally FABULOUS.
Thank you, again, Al Gore- for inventing the internet.  I do enjoy using it.

  3. I'm sooooo sorry I missed this! But I arrived home just 60 minutes ago...it's been that kind of two weeks! So did you just eat or did you guys fabric shop too?

  6. Your food to eat looks yummy with great company! Your food for thought is very interesting too. With billboards outlawed in my state, I find my greatest exposure to advertising is online.

  13. We had the best day. I loved seeing Robin and Lindsay again and meeting Sigrid was wonderful. I don't know about anyone else, but I was totally exhausted when I got off the train. But, what fun. I will be happy to meet anyone who wants to meet up in NYC. People who's eyes don't glaze over from sewing talk!

  14. I agree with Nancy and Lindsey and Sigrid; it was a wonderful day. And, yep I am tired!! This is my busy time of year at work my schedule is jam packed. It is great to make it into the garment district and it is special when we can meet in real life.

  15. So much fun to have a sewing bloggers meet-up! I'm jealous! I would dearly love to visit the garment district and visit some of those fabulous fabric shops I've seen on the net...
    Oh, and at the risk of sounding like a computer nerd.. no one person invented the internet, it was the work of many people, and not Al Gore... But I hear you. The internet is such a wonderful thing!! I love it, and spend way too much time surfing!

  16. Carolyn, yes, it is quite exciting to meet other bloggers in real life! I hope so visit places like Australia and New Zealand someday. While DH goes sight-seeing, I'll be meeting up with other boggers!!
    The comment about Al Gore- that refers to a gaffe he made a few years ago; claiming he had invented the internet. He was widely teased here in the US for such a silly comment... I am sure he will never live it down :)
