Downtown San Francisco

During my recent vacation, I had a little time to kill while my friends were at work. I bravely took the BART into the city, from Walnut Creek (where I was staying) and knew I had to visit Britex Fabrics. I had heard so much about this fabric store and it didn't disappoint! Unfortunately, they didn't allow visitors to take pictures on the inside, but there were four floors of fabrics, trims and notions. To be honest, I was a bit overwhelmed. And it was rather pricey, many of the fabrics were $30-$40 a yard! But I did manage to find some fabrics, which I will reveal in some future sewing project.
San Francisco doesn't have an official garment district, but there was something garment-y going on, on the same street as Britex... Look what I spotted in a window. Patterns!
As I continued my shopping trip, I came across a sign touting a flower show at Macy's. I decided to go check it out. Turns out a local floral designer created a new, big floral arrangement every day! That day happened to have an Alice in Wonderland theme. Amazing!
This was the really beautiful and impressive window display advertising the flower display.
Here's the REAL reason I went to California. To visit my friends, Sarah and Mariah! (And also Kelly, who was visiting from Illinois, who kindly took the picture, therefore is not pictured.) We met up later for happy hour. Miss you all!!
