MORE OF PORTLAND + QUILT MARKET

Just when you thought you'd seen enough of the Quilt Market...here I come with more. I'm a few days late getting the second installment because, well, just because.

These first two are from the Meet and Greet I posted about last time. This is Charlotte Barnard, Deputy Editor of Country Living Magazine on the left and Jona of Fabritopia I've actually met and chatted with Charlotte a couple other times and emailed Jona before, so I wasn't just running around hugging people. Not that I'm beyond hugging strangers, but it was just so much darn fun to all be together in one place that I was filled with warm fuzzies and hugs for all. I had a lovely chat with Donna Wilder. She was actually instramental in encouraging me quite awhile back to submit fabric designs.



I took a photo of this quilt during the show...I really saw this as an art piece/Geo Wall Art.


Right across the street from the Oba Restaurante were two shops I just had to tell you about. Oblation was irresistible. We made a purchase or two! I took a shot of the storefront as well.



Two doors away is Cielo Home. Incredibly wonderful store filled with home and garden treasures. There were so many lovely shops and restaurants in the Pearl District that we went back several times to shop and dine.


I couldn't be in Portland without finally meeting my web designer in person! Ron and I have spent hours on the phone and emailing for almost a year. He's the huge talent behind the makeover of my Paula Prass and mimi's collection websites. Meeting up with him was one of the highlights of a wonderful trip in every way.
