You don't mind me catching up a bit i hope.  Portland Market was nearly a month ago and we have already gone to and returned from another show.  But Market was fun and I meant to share.  So . .

 We were set up the first day so were fancy free all during day two.  Debbie and Jeff (Wooden Spool Designs) directed us to Monticello.  GO!  I was so excited that it never occurred to me to take a picture of this marvelous place, until we were driving away.   Huge and with the entire backside of the building being their antique garden center.  Oh my . . bring me a semi will ya?

Joan and Debbie and John headed back to the convention center for Sample Spree but wine and dinner sounded better to Kathi and I.   Visited one of my favorite McMenamins in Troutsdale - Edgefield.  The Poor Farm.  Quite a history.   And thank you Troutsdale Historical Society for preventing the county from completely demolishing every single building.  Imagine that.  Go visit and you will thank them too.

This is the main lodge.  And in front,
a very intriqueing sculpture. He wanted to come home with me. . . I'm quite sure of it.
Yum - One of the numerous dining places
at Edgefield.  Was soooo good!

All fine evenings deserve a work day to follow . . i guess.   Off to Market next morning.
Home sweet home for the next three days.  And lots of terrific eateries in the evenings!
We were all booth neighbors.  More fun that way.  My camera did not make it very far.  Wooden Spool's awesome booth was just down the way and you should kick me for not getting you a shot.

Market just amazes me.  Wish there was time for more pictures. 
Hope you liked!


  1. Glad you had so many great adventures during Quilt Market! I need to make it to Monticello! The booths were amazing - stunning projects and wonderful designers - glad we had a chance to help out and look around! Thanks!

  2. Great pictures Reets, what a fun time you had. The dinner restaurant looks mighty impressive. Sounds about right for our 47th wedding anniversary coming up soon.
