Ah, Portland..... Part 1

I just returned yesterday morning from a mini-vacation in Portland, Maine. What an incredible place! I wish I would have had more time there to enjoy more of it. I did get to see a lot of it but would have loved to see more! I'm hoping for another trip this sailing season. I normally don't share many vacation photos that are not sewing related. I will have to make an exception for this trip. I also did pick up some fabric too ;)


I love this picture! I took it outside of the tourist bureau on the waterfront. Love the reflection in the water.

Some pictures of downtown...


Love the brick buildings!


I may someday want to make an Art quilt from this picture. Just a beautiful building!


And I love the different colours of paint on these buildings!

And a couple of lighthouses...

Portland Head Light

Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse

Portland is definitely a beautiful place. Beautiful lighthouses, interesting buildings, and a great history. Not to mention there's a fabric store or two around ;)

I was backpacking so I had to limit and debate my fabric and notion purchases....my first stop was at Jo-Ann's....


I picked up some Jumbo Wonder Clips with my half price coupon and managed to score this Babyville Playful Friends Owl PUL fabric remnant for just under $7! There is almost a full yard! Very excited to try this out!

And these gorgeous vintage looking buttons :)

Some heavy weave cotton made for Jo-Ann's. I am thinking of covering a few of those 26" pillow forms I have stashed away.

Love this Mod Geek Atmosphere fabric from Sarah Johnston! And at 30% off, it was a steal!

I hope you enjoyed my post about a small part of my trip to Portland. Stay tuned for a second post with more Portland pictures and my second fabric stop :)

  4. That row of coloured houses would be a great one to put through the Palette Builder on Playcrafts! Have a great getaway.... and don't spend all your fabric money in one place!
