Portland in Full Bloom



This morning, we hiked up to the Rose Garden. So happy we did because I think it is at it’s peak, right now. Here are some photos I took today.





We saw lots of purpleish roses today. There was one that was like a dark burgundy, but the photo did not turn out.





We even got to see the Rose Queen getting photographed in the garden.


And this Shakespeare quote.


Really a beautiful place in June.

I finished quilting the blue Picasso woman. She is ready for facings.


In other exciting news, I had 3 pieces selected for The American Art Company’s Twelfth Northwest Contemporary Quilt Invitational. The gallery is in Tacoma. I have always wanted to enter this show, but never had a heads up as to when they were taking submissions. I found out that a friend had entered so on a whim, I contacted them and even though it was past the deadline, she looked at my work and chose 3 pieces to be in the show РKelp Dance, and my two big aspen pieces. I am really happy that I took the chance and sent that e-mail.
