I’ve finally made time to show you a bit of Spring International Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon last month.
Our neighbors were
Susan & Karen of The Quilt Branch,
and Robin of Nestlings by Robin.
Here is Robin with Chloe and me.
It was literally cloudy/rainy every day we were there until
Monday after market closed and we stayed to do a bit of sight-seeing.
Talk about good fortune!
In Astoria, we ate at Pig ‘n Pancake (cute name huh?),
crossed into Washington on a really tall bridge,
then did some antiquing and vintage shopping.
I bought a few things for fall market that I could pack into our suitcases.
I’ll show you those another day.
Good thing we sold most all the patterns & books we brought!
This is a cool old tile floor in the huge antique store that appeared to be a hotel among other things in its previous lives.
We had lunch at Baked Alaska out on a pier, not something we can do everyday back in the Midwest…
Then we ventured down the coast to the beach.
We had a beautiful trip back to Portland through two national forests.
The next morning we got up early and headed to Multnoma Falls before our flight.
I love how the smoke was wafting out of the gift shop.
It reminded me of the story of Hansel & Gretel!
More than once Chloe thanked me for making her pack a jacket!
Always a mom…
I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of our travels.
Oregon is beautiful!
If you get the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend it.
Until next time,
