Oh my---so many things to show from my trip to Portland for Quilt Market. It was such a blast. I got to hang with the lovely three--Linzee, Jenny, and Codi. And, we ate our way around Portland, sampling Voodoo Doughnuts, tasty local brews, and Salt & Straw's amazing selection of ice cream. It was pretty amazing----oh, and there was a quilt show too! ha.
|My favorite flavor.|
|I tried out some new looks!|
|Iowa is just packed with creative ladies!|
L to R: Linzee, Codi, Vanessa, Jenny, Me
|My lemon thyme marinated chevre, tomato, balsamic mushroom, spinach waffle at the Waffle Window--yum!|
|Bollywood Theater---by far THE. BEST. INDIAN. FOOD. EVER. EVER!|
|Voodoo doughnut smiles.|
|Codi loves it when I want to cuddle! :)|
|The lovely ladies of Oliver + S, Made by Rae, and Wiksten|
And, finally, Amy Sedaris now has a line of fabric with Windham! I think that I'd like to be an adopted member of the Sedaris family-----Thanksgiving's with David and Amy---sure, why not!? ha. Amy and I could chat fabric and crafts while David tells us stories. I can just see it!
While at the Windham booth, I was lucky enough to get a fabulous little fat quarter bundle of her upcoming line "I Like You." It's pretty bold and wild, but as it should be right?
There's a great catalog with Miss Amy herself in a few little get-ups made with her line and home decor galore featuring her ric arc and tulip designs. It's pretty great---check it out.
I think my favorite might be this bold, stained glass-like print full of color. It would make a great dress.
One of my favorite parts of market is always stopping by the booth of hand dyed Akonye Kena textiles. These fabrics are just so beautiful! I love the colors and always wish I had bought more--every time!
You can really see the variation of color in this one.
