Stitches in Bloom
Since we were heading over the mountain to Portland I was alerted to a quilt show on the way! Stitches in Bloom held each year at the Oregon Garden in Silverton. As soon as I walked in the center I ran into fellow Oregon quilter and Woolie reader, Jenny! Quilting/Blogging does make the world so much smaller. And, it is a treat for me to run into fellow addicts! lol
The show was in a wonderful setting, allowing one to walk around the gardens and take in natures quilts...then head inside and see the creations of fellow quilters. Definitely a show which is more Artistic...which is in my mind different than Modern. There were a few traditional quilts and of course a place for the vendors!
I have heard of quilt group in Central Oregon heading to the Oregon Gardens for their retreats. They have lodging and a place to sew! Something to think about in the future.
After the show we were making our way by back road to Portland and decided to have lunch in Mt. Angel. Neither of us had been to this little German inspired hamlet. HH accuses me of using Enzo much like a stage mom uses their kids...but really, he is so perfect in the way he engages the world around him. I am not sure if Enzo is talking to the gentleman...or if the gentleman said something to him?
Be sure to pour yourself a cup of coffee before starting the slide show and Enjoy!!!
