Portland, Waterfalls and More

I’m back from my fun trip to Portland. Powell’s bookstore was amazing. There were lofted floors, red, blue, yellow and green rooms, oh my! I had fun looking through each section, trying to decide what to purchase. I did well, I was able to pack everything into my suitcase. I came home with two Jane Austin books and a The Restorer by Sharon Hinck. I’ll review it later.

Ed also took me to the Mill End Fabric store which for me was a touch of heaven. Where I live most of the stores carry a huge quantity of quilting fabrics and little apparel fabric. Mill End had row after row of fine apparel fabric. Again, I was was controlled. 🙂 Nothing like a packing limit to keep yourself from over spending.

Tuesday, we explored the Colombia River Gorge, hiked up a few trails to get a better of few waterfalls. It was beautiful and cold! My fingers were tingling from the frigid air!
.

The trip was over fast. I was prepared with my maps and places marked I wanted to go but I can see a need to return someday. There is a lot of things to do in this city.
AND while we were there it only rained once.

    Next time you go to Portland, you must go to Fabric Depot…it is way bigger than Mill End, and has much better prices! It is a garment sewer’s paradise 🙂 I think they say it is over an acre of fabric…but Mill End is lovely, too! Its just that the “natives” don’t shop there as much due to the high prices!Terri in Oregon(I don’t have a blogger identity…so it will say anonymous)
