Last week I visited NYC - and finally made it to Mood, a place I have been wanting to go for a long long time! Mood is the fabric store the designers visit on the show Project Runway. I could just picture myself running through the aisles, smile on my face, the gleam of competition in my eye.... My actual visit was sort of like that, without the competition. The people there were surprisingly friendly. I had heard they were a little snooty, but that was not my experience at all.

Above: My first glimpse! This store is sort of hidden on the 3rd floor of a building, but we found it! Below: Mood in all its fabric upon fabric glory. Very overwhelming.

My niece was snapping crazy crooked pictures, but I am glad to have this one of me checking out the selection.

Above: Button and notion corner. Below: Me with Swatch - the Mood dog. Even he has been on Project Runway! And he was super friendly.

This was hanging in the entryway - look familiar? I have one of these lanterns too! See it here.

Three women on a mission... (truthfully we look a little tired -
 this was our last day in NYC and we were getting pretty exhausted!)

These cool plaques were on the sidewalks all over the fashion district in NYC - I missed sister Betsey Johnson but my sister said she was there!

So that was the Mood experience. It was super fun and super worth it. I can't believe I don't have photos of the fabric I picked out! I will be sure to show it soon - hopefully made into something wonderful. Here's a hint... I finally have REAL chevron fabric. And it won't be long before it is somewhere in my house!

It was every bit and more, as you said. NYC was crazy but everyone should see it!! Mood was a wonderful fabric store.

Thank You.
