|I was taken with the redwoods.|
In Portland we saw fabrics and buttons and amazing scenery. The coast was very rugged. Mt Hood was a snowy wonderland with the sun out and snow falling at the same time. There were amazing waterfalls along the Columbia River scenic road.

The food was to die for and I put on 2 kg. I had prawns in lobster mornay source at Jakes famous crab house and cherry pie at Cattins diner.
Then I had to get my bags home. I spread everything out when I got home. I bought a tea set, quilting fabrics, dress fabrics, 2 handbags, felted wool for applique, books and patterns and lots of ribbons and equipment. I have been up in my sewing room trying to sew up as many of the dress fabrics as I can so I don't have to put them away. I love sewing the slinky knits and they feel nice to wear too.

I have just noticed it is the 25th. I think I will decorate a few tea towels for my Christmas commitments. I will whip them up now and put them up tomorrow.
