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. 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.
