It's a wrap. After thirteen years hosting this incredible event at Fort Worden, WA Teesha needed a break to think about something new. She promised at opening night that this is going to be BIG.
For the second time my sister flew in from Germany. You might think this is german timing, we landed 30 minutes apart at the same terminal, placed her luggage in a rental car. ( mine was lost, but Delta managed to drop it off at 2 in the morning at hotel MAX. OMG - each floor had his own artistic setting.
Before putting our feet up I introduced my sister to Joann's fabric and Michael's - bad idea. She was over the moon from all the craft ailses. One thing I can say that she can't handle to see anymore fabric stores, since I had several on my to-do-list.
The Pike Market ( where did the fish go????)
and not to miss my favourite store
Uwajimaja, a large asian food store with the best japanese book store in the back.
Now I need a japanese friend to translate the instructions!
The cutest pencil case and tiny rubber stamp.
More tomorrow......I feel I am coming down with a cold and have to catch up with sleep.
