If I Could Design Our Flag

It might look something like this:

During the few hours of free time I had up in Seattle, thanks to my sister's online scouting for me, I got to find the cool fabric store -- and, shop without children, I might add. You know it'll be interesting when a fabric store is fronted by faux fur and Japanese prints. Although it's not a large shop, Stitches has so many fun and exciting things to look at, touch. I finally got my hands on the Naomi Ito linen that I've been eying online, but was too afraid to bite into without seeing it first. Then, by the counter, I spied rolls of the lightest Italian wool jersey in two stripe-y colorways. These were the two fabrics I came home with. They are both things I can't get in my own town. I *love* both of them. And, Amy, the owner was very pleasant, turning me onto the good independent coffee right up the street.
