Portland Weekend

After four days in Portland we had to say goodbye but we'll be back, you know there are some places that call your name and we hear it at least once a year.

 After two full days of nonstop walking downtown Portland my husband was beyond tuckered, so I was fortunate enough to have a couple of hours at Fabric Depot on Sunday.  Holly Hill Quilt shop was on my radar but they were closed that day and as we were leaving very early Monday morning it wasn't meant to be.
Fabric Depot Retail Store in Portland, Oregon
I really didn't have anything specific to buy but you know how all sense of reason can leave you once you open those magical doors.  I decided to just look for neutrals and I think I succeeded in that department and I also picked up a couple of notions that were a really great price, everything was 30% off that day except for a Yoko Saito book I purchased though it was 20% off.   After that we made a quick stop at Joann's so  here is a sneak peek of what I had go declare when we came home to Victoria, BC.

I picked the Artbin up at Joann's for 50% off and I just love them for my threads, kinda like keeping chaos under control.  They have great storage for so many things so look them up and you won't be disappointed, in fact it'll be hard to rein yourself in!
While my hubby is down and out with a nasty cold I'm going to fondle the fabric just a little bit before I find it a new home then it's back to quilting, woot, woot.
