Confession time

I'm in Istanbul (last day here - I leave unearthly early tomorrow to fly back home).

On Saturday evening, as I was walking down Iskadil Cadesssi (I'm quite sure I've mispelled this) I saw a fabric store.

Ah, my heart skipped a beat. But alas, it was closed.

Of course, I made it there today (well, I tried yesterday as well, but it was closed since it was Sunday.)

And I did buy wool.

In my defense, just a tiny bit - slightly under 2 meters. It was so ridiculously cheap (~$20 for 2 meters) that I felt I had to.

Now for the true test - I need to go pack in a bit. It remains to be seen if the suitcase will close.

(And Kristy - another confession. I took the machine to India, but my parents are carting it back for me. Umm. Yes, I am rather spoiled.)

Pictures to follow tomorrow - as soon as I return, greet the little Biscuit, and download the ~200ish pictures I've taken on vacation.

Hope you're able to close your suitcase. Have a safe trip back. Can't wait to see what fabrics you picked up.
