Scrap Girls meet in Portland OR...

Sally and I drove the three hours to west Portland today. Along the way Sally took a myriad of photos from the window and thru the sunroof. We saw some amazing spring green hills and fluffy clouds, and even some clouds that looked like a school of fish swimming by!

Our hostess was April Martell and she shared some of her sewing handiwork with us, including a lovely yellow and blue star quilt, and several formal dresses.

We took a few shots of our group: Vaughnde Edwards, Sally Gregson, Kay Ott (seated at end of table), designer Jacelen Deinema, April Martell. Gayle Starker and I took turns taking the pic.
After our fiesta, we picked April's brain about digital "how to" and learned so much!
It was a helpful and fun event... can't wait for another chance to meet and greet more Scrap Girls. Next meeting is scheduled for July 18 when Dr Sandi visits from St Louis!

Awesome Pictures Barb! I love what you've done. It was a FUN time and I'm looking forward to seeing you again in July!

How fun to put real faces with names getting to meet everyone in person. And Barb, thanks for bringing a tasty casserole. Wonder if you'd be willing to share the recipe. Hint hint :) I think it is one my Tuesday quilters would love. Thanks for the pics.
