Oregon Bike Trip

I love the fact the the Quilts Plus in Halfway, OR has about as many bolts of batik fabric as they have residents of the town.   I was picking out fabric with wild abandon and  received a surprise bonus when I found out that there was 25% off sale.  Hurray!

We also stopped at the 3 quilt shops in Baker.  One was closed and the other 2 I'd been to last month - and they didn't have anything new in fabrics I was looking for.  So we stopped at the Geiser Grand for a cold drink.  It's a haunted hotel.  We stayed there a couple years ago with the family.  When we walked into the library for the first time, all 4 of us (without saying anything) walked up to this book case and started looking for secret triggers to make the bookcase move.  There isn't one.  We just all read too much Nancy Drew.  I sent this pic to the girls by phone to see if they could guess where we were.

And the quilt shop in Joseph is open 11-3 on Sundays from Easter to Christmas....just in case you needed to know.

That sounds like a great ratio of bolts to people! Enjoy the trip

When I go to Oregon, it is just to see three of my kids and get a book fix at Powells books. I see I need to get around more!
