Visit to LA Mood at the new location

Dear readers,

I made a visit to Mood last week on my day off and it was brilliant - not done yet (so I didn't take pictures) but much easier to get to (off the 101 in Hollywood and then South on Vine, take a right on 3rd, and a left on La Brea and Mood is on your right.  It was much larger and had about 30 percent more fabric and notions.  I loved it.  I bought these fabrics:
On the left, some seersucker (for a shift dress), in the middle, some vintage-y fabric for the button down shirt Craftsy class (tailored shirt) and more cotton for the class.

Very unlike me - I wanted to splurge on some wools and knits.  But I didn't.  I was fiscally efficient (sadly).  But, what a wonderful location and fabulous store - more to follow.

Over Christmas I made many more washcloths below (the patterns are Here, waffle knit dishcloth and Here):
 Unfortunately, one blue curly Kerry was too interested in these items:
 What? Dog Toys?  Yeah!!
Apparently, knitting equals dog toys!


  1. Yay for you, and I had to laugh at your directions to Mood. If you watch Saturday Night Live, they have a skit called The Californians that looks like a soap opera, but the characters give really detailed descriptions of which highways they took to get somewhere. Must really be a California thing!

  2. So true!! Jonathan and I love that skit the Californians (and we're like Whoa! You're taking the 405 (making faces))...It really is in LA for certain!

  3. So glad you like the new Mood LA store! Come back again soon.

    1. I love it! I'll take some pix and do a post when I'm there next (and everything is finished). I have to come down this week as soon as possible to buy some replacement fabric where I messed up a waistband. But brilliant new location!
