NW Vibes Show in Portland

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

I had a busy, fun day. This morning I joined the STASH group at Beth’s for coffee and catching up. Then, we took Gale out for lunch. Five of us had the roasted eggplant sandwich at Ernesto’s, near Beth’s house. It is so good.

Back at the house, I did some more sorting and purging. I have a sizable amount of unfused scraps which could be used for scrappy quilts. I am happy to say that I have found a couple of charity quilt groups which will take them off my hands.

Next, we were off to downtown Portland and the ArtReach Gallery at the First Congregational Church where our High Fiber Diet is displayed. I was so thrilled to have several friends show up for the show. I think this is the first time that I have had non-quilter friends attend a show reception. It was great. Here are a couple of shots of the show taken with my iPhone.

That is my quilt, second from the right.

It is a very nice space and the quilts were hung very nicely.

Then, we were off to have dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Lauro Kitchen. Oops! It is closed. The owner just decided he has had a nice run and sold it. Another restaurant will open there in the fall. We will miss it. So, we backtracked and went to Nuestra Cocina, an upscale Mexican restaurant. We had a very delicious meal and will be going back.

I am quite enjoying the orange!!
