Quilt With Us

High Fiber—Trip to the Coast, Almost

We've spent some time hanging out in various campsites.

And riding for hours in the tow vehicle for our trailer.

Or in the trailer.

 

Storing up energy for some fetching play in various fields, like this dog exercise field at Champoeg State Park in Oregon.

On our last evening in Champoeg we had dinner with DH's brother.

 

Then we went on to Beaverton for DS2's preschool graduation on the Nike campus, followed by snacks.

We managed to fit in a trip to the Oregon Zoo in Portland. They have a great large bird show with  various birds from all over the world flying over the audience, right over our heads. At the end of the show, we had the opportunity to give donations to the vulture, who deposited them in the donation box.

 

 

Mandy rocks the steampunk costume, with the petticoat and corset finished. I should have more to show next week. The sleeves are done on the Braemar, and already CO for the body.

Off for wine-tasting today, the pups are at doggy daycare, and the boys to school. Stay tuned.

What's on my needles: Three Steps petticoat and corset finished. Now working on the Braemar coat.

What's on my Featherweight: Put away for now.

What's on my loom: Still waiting.

What's on my wheel: Stanzi also still waiting.

What's on my iPad/iPhone: Finished Hacker Mom by Austen Rachlis. Listened to Rachel Abbott’s Only the Innocent again, this time with DH as we traveled. We both enjoyed it, even thought I sort of remembered how it went. On the Kindle app, finished Dying to Read. Now reading Undeniable by Laura Stapleton. Not sure how I like it yet.

What's in my wine glass: Lots of everything. Wine tasting today.

What's my tip of the week: A tired pup is an obedient pup. Keep ’em tired if you can.

Bend would be a lovely choice, Peggy.  I've never lived there, but I've spent some time vacationing there -- great skiing at Bachelor Mountain!  Bend is a bit chilly in the winter, but probably not much difference from where you live in Utah now -- just less snow in town.  They have (or used to have) two or three quilt shops. The "old part" of town was lovely and had a park with a lake.  I also remember a great french restaurant in an old church!  There's the Sisters annual outdoor quilt show not far away.  (I probably sound like your realtor!)

The snow is getting to be a bit much for us to keep up with, and we need a place with less upkeep. I'm pretty much happy wherever I am, in spite of life's frustrations sometimes.

Are you wanting to relocate, Peggy? You sound so happy where you are.  We often talk about moving to be a bit closer to family, but we really love living here by our lake so it's usually just talk. At some point I think the winters will get the better of us though.

It seems like a great place for active seniors. Hiking, snow sports, lots of parks, local breweries, and because it's far from major cities, it has extras you usually just find in those places. People come from miles around to shop. People seem friendly. I love our realtors.

what do you think of Bend?  It's half way between our kids.

We're in Bend now. Trying to decide if it's a good place for us to live.

Looks like everyone is enjoying the adventure.

What fun you, the pups and the dolls are having! Enjoyed the blog post very much!

As always, I enjoyed your blog.  Love the clothes you make for your doll family and it's always a pleasure to read about your pups and your adventures.
