And retirement is…..

Heading out to Tacoma to catch the ferry to Vashon Island on a Wednesday morning dressed in jeans, Chuck Taylors and a cozy sweatshirt.  The goal was to get to the ferry dock at Point Defiance for the 9:15 sailing.  Didn’t quite leave in time but no worries, caught the 10:05 sailing.  I was first in line, therefore first to drive on the ferry.  I had a front row seat for the gray trip across the water.  Once we hit land, it was a quick 20 minutes up island to the quilt shop, Island Quilter.  Yesterday was the last full day of the Laurel Burch tribute show.  Once I got permission  I got lots of great pics of her quilts.  I will always be attracted to quilts made with blacks and bright colors.  Her whimsical creatures crawl all over each of those quilt creations crafted with her fabrics.1002131129 1002131130 1002131130a I was also on a mission to find hummingbird fabric and that I did with Paul’s help.

I was able to take advantage of the generous gift card for my retirement and have added to my stash.  Lunch with Elaine at The Hardware Store (local restaurant) and a trip to the local coffee roaster and I was back in line for the ferry.  I hope to go back often this Fall as there is a new exhibit about to be hung.  I better get busy because that fabric stash needs to be made into wonderful useful items.

    glad you qualified the Haardware Store as a local restaurant. I was picturing you eating penny nails and glue! Perhaps a good way to increase tyour iron intake but hard on your intestinal tract!

  2. Sounds like a day you would have dreamed for a year ago while working on a random Wednesday!

  3. Sounds like a perfect day to me!
