I’ve finally made time to show you a bit of Spring International Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon last month.
This is Chloe & me in our booth.
Our neighbors were
Susan & Karen of The Quilt Branch,
and Robin of Nestlings by Robin.
Portland is beautiful.This is a view from the Portland City Grill where we were having dinner one evening after market.
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.
It was sunny, but not warm enough to swim…
We shopped for souvenirs and found the quilt shop that I remembered from a previous visit to Oregon with my brother, David.
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,
