Stevenson WA Quilt Show

This is a long overdue post, but finally I've pulled together a bunch of pictures to tell a story about the Stevenson Quilt Show. The trip took place Sept 16 - 20th and it all

^started in my kitchen.^

^We loaded up the vehicle and hit the road.^
Thanks Rena, what a great quilt you had in the show!
We traveled to Innovations in Tacoma and stayed long enough for me to teach my class, cruise the show, spend $125 and get back on the road to Chehalis, home of Sisters Quilt shop. Wow, do they have inventory!

My traveling buddy and pilot of our trip decided to do a little retail therapy in the clothing store next to the quilt shop. After trying on many things, a new pair of shoes ended up going home with Muriel. While standing at the counter and thinking about what we were going to have for lunch, M thought she would just have a taste of the sample of something the store had on display. We were getting hungry, we had already shopped 2 quilt stores. Just a bite......

What she didn't plan on was washing out her mouth with soap.
And me, the one with the potty mouth! This was the best laugh I had during our whole trip!
We continued on to Cascade Locks in the Columbia Gorge and here are some pics of our trip.
