most fun happens on the weekend:
“little winter handmade sale” happened at the Ace Hotel, downtown Portland, Oregon
But it was all business downstairs. Kristen worked on a “saw that, made this” project. The teal and orange pumpkins were purchased, the others she made (she’s sure to post more about it on her blog). Aren’t they great—mom I already know you want one. Amber and Kristen made camera strap covers. Amber further procrastinated on her “triangle quilt” and made a pillow for her self and an owl bag for Tuesday. I worked on my project modern quilt that isn’t to be revealed yet. We left Salem around 10:45 p exhausted, but satisfied with our progress.
Art happened. We decided to take advantage of a Bank of America perk, Museums on Us, and headed downtown Portland on Sunday. While walking to Portland Art Museum I made a few new discoveries. First off the Goodwill on 10th is amazing—set up like a boutique. Then I saw an olive oil “bar.” And another make-it-yourself yogurt place (the one in Corvallis on Monroe is the best I’ve come across). Then—there seems to be a store (10th and Yamhill) closely associated with Crafty Wonderland, that wasn’t open yet, but has the coolest window displays… more on that later—this just in.
and finally DST happened and I am awake at what was last night 10:30, but now 9:30.
weekends are my favorite.
