I loved my short trip to the Northwest. I did lots of tourist things including two trips to Pike's Market.
Of course there were the visits to the local quilt and yarn shops. 
Some of my purchases:

We had all day Sunday to explore. We took the ferry out to Bainbridge Island.
Since it was noon when we docked, and walked up the hill to the tow, we decided to have lunch which turned out to be another breakfast. Let me recommend the Silver Streamlined Diner. I had the apple jack cheese omelet. 
AJ ate the diner's version of eggs Benedict--biscuit instead of muffin and sausage instead of sauce.

After all the food, we went shopping - well I did. First stop was McKenna Ryan's showroom. Don't you love the purple door!
My purchase:
On the ferry back to Seattle, we saw Mt. Rainer.
As we were walking back to the hotel, I took a picture of this dog waiting patiently for its owner.

Before I went to Seattle

Before I left for the Northwest, I had some finishes. Here is a baby book, another burp cloth, and a self binding flannel receiving blanket that baby gator loves.I watched a you tube video by Missouri Quilting.
I managed to finish some Farmer's Wife quilt blocks. Here is one.

I finished knitting the pink baby hat for Mary Beth's friend. I crochet a flower for some embellishment.
I worked a little on my new BOM - why did I sign up for this???

I feed my male ducks that visited me.

And answered the door for Mrs. and Mr. Duck. They were hungry.

My Car Project

I started this project the last time I was in Texas. Since then, I only work on it in the car. Five weeks later - here is what I have finished:
It is a vintage Bambi baby quilt. It does have some issues such as the binding will need some repair. I have been careful to not allow the embroidery thread show through on the back.
