Finally Home Again!

Arrived home at about dark last evening. Tired for sure! Eleven days of fun, fun, fun doing girl stuff. I want to tell you more about my travels. First, see my post below for photos from my "Quilts Of Valor" week-end.

Friday the 17th I headed South from Pam's in Vancouver. I needed to make a stop at her sister's in Bothell, Washington to drop off birthday and wedding gifts. Was good to see Vicki again too. It took me over 3 hours to travel from Bothell to McChord AFB near Tacoma. Man, I couldn't live along that I-5 corridor ever again! Way too much traffic! Too many people! Took a rest, ate dinner and visited the new Exchange on base. When I left McChord two hours later the traffic was still crawling! It took another 3 hours to reach Portland.

Aah, Portland! The Northwest Stitchers Get-Together. I stayed with our hostess, Vickie. In the morning we met up with most of the gals at Acorns & Threads LNS. After a little shopping we lunched at Sweet Tomatoes'. Then everyone headed to Vickie's. These are such fun and inspirational week-ends. Seeing other stitchers accomplishments and WIPs. Checking out each others' stash. Making new friends and visiting with old friends.

So now I suppose you expect to see some of my new stash!! Maybe I can get some photos when DH isn't looking. I think he'd have a stroke if he knew how much I've spent.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment... I just love heearing from you!
