Let it be said that there has been a LOT of this going on today.
My flight out of Portland, Oregon was at 10:30, but getting me there at 8:30 wasn’t going to work because of rush hour madness on a Thursday work day morning, so to beat the rush, rather get stuck in that which could end up getting me to the airport too late – we headed out at 7am, and got me to the airport way ahead of schedule.
That’s perfectly fine with me – I welcome that! It gives me time to find a place to sit, catch up on emails, stitch a little bit and the morning is better much more relaxed, than frantic and worried about not catching a flight.
No delays this morning, and as we left Portland and headed East, I snapped this photo of the river ---awesome!
Bye bye, Oregon!
I wondered if I would be treated to another awesome view of Mt Hood on our way out – we were farther away and the clouds were more present then on my previous two air encounters, not to mention there seemed to be this thing called a JET ENGINE right in my viewing area – but still…amazing!
Can you find it in the clouds?
Now the only thing keeping me from my bed is a 4 hour layover since my flight to Greensboro has been delayed ---don’t worry, Mickey is on alert and if I can’t get home, she’ll come get me again! Weather doesn’t seem to be the issue here, it’s a late arriving aircraft, so hopefully all will be well and I’ll be home in no time.
I wanted to share with you something special while I’m thinking about it – we had AMAZING show and share in Portland ---
This is the Hexie Installment:
Oh My GOODNESS!!
My hand for scale ---
And here is the quilter herself, Jean Bissell!
Oh I just love this layout she has been working on – She’s going to leave it rectangular and it is evolving and being designed as she goes ---
And how about we go even smaller??
Mary’s Hexies & Diamonds in Progress!
Uhoh! I can’t remember who is hiding behind this one!!
This one I think was made with vintage 1970s & 1980s calicoes….is it Mary’s? Three days of workshops and my mind is a blur ---just hoping I can get home tonight!
There will of course be more show & share coming in the next day or so ---
Thank you Northwest Quilters! We had an awesome time, and we are working on our next visit in 2018! *fingers crossed*
