The good life in Vermont

Right now I'm in Burlington, Vermont, and among all the day's shopping I dropped into an awesome fabric and yarn shop downtown - Nido.

Definitely it's worth a visit if you're in the area. Fabric was my focus, and I got some yards of really lovely stuff I can't wait to sew. My plan for three yards of co-ordinating fabric is to make a few bags for travelling to hold shoes, undergarments and assorted items that usually end up stowed in plastic bags. Handsewn fabric bags are far more civilized.

There was also a stop at this cool vintage lamp shop:

The best part of shopping in the city is the long pedestrian shopping street, complete with a Ben and Jerry's ice cream shop. Vermont is their home, so we were obliged to have a scoop. Vacationing can be tough.
