My friend Carrie from Cricketwood Prims and Garden was in Portland yesterday and wanted to go to Pioneer Quilts in Happy Valley Pioneer Quilts as I have been telling her about this quilt store for some time.  We made it in there - me, with just two purchases, her - several.  :o)  Then we ventured to Holly Hill Quilt store in West Linn Holly Hill Quilts.  My purchases were a bit more as I finally found more fabric to use for my "Flowers" quilt that she, Lori  - Humble Quilts and I are going to do. 

These are from Pioneer Quilts -

And these are from Holly Hill

And lastly, my son is starting his senior year in high school and I found this for when he leaves home and goes off to college...I will bolt it down to his computer so he will always see it.  :o)

It was a fun day and then we ended our evening with dinner at Oswego Grill in Lake Oswego.  Happy Day.


  1. Michelle,
    I had so much fun Michelle, you are so right, they were both wonderful shops. I love your little present for Holden......perfect!! Lets do it again.....SOON! Where shall we go?

  2. Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. I wish I would've known you were at Happy Girls I would've said hi! Next time! I'm not doing the Dirty Happy Girls - it's nearing ski season so I usually cut back racing by November. I might do the turkey trot at the zoo though! I'm glad you were spared the bee stings - felt very sorry for the ladies that got stung. I think I just missed the attacks. Must've been running just fast enough, I guess. Take care and good luck on your walking and with Dirty Happy Girls if you are doing it!

  3. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog! I have wanted to start quilting for ages. You have sparked that desire again. AND I need that son is a freshman in college! :-)
