It was a big day yesterday! Shannon and I found and braved a fabric store. I even picked a pattern (the one you see here) and, with Shannon's help, some fabric. Though I have never, ever thought I would sew it still reminded me of how I always loved, loved, loved the piles of fabric that Mom would have. They were always inspiring to me. And pattern books - YUM! I'm looking forward to this crazy adventure.
I had the day to myself yesterday and have been waiting patiently to go to Maxim's Bakery. I used to go there all the time when we lived in Vancouver before for their Mexican Buns. I had been waiting until there was a day I could stop by and pick up some buns and enjoy them at home. I made it back just before the rain started. It was just as I remembered it. Sweet, soft with a beautiful crust on top. Wonderful.
