Week-end in Anacortes

Turns out it was our last RVing week-end of the 2014 season.  I always hate it when this date comes - I so love going out in the rig - and I sleep so well in that little space.  On Friday morning, before all the regular activities began, we headed into town.  We started with a visit to the Soroptimist's Thrift Shop.  If you read this blog, you know I love to find fabric "cheap".  I managed to locate a number of pieces ranging from 1 yard to 4.5 yards - for a total of $14.

Also visited two "real" quilt stores and found a couple of little things.  With the current passion around the movie and stars of "Frozen", the one panel was perfect for a little 3 year old I see each week.  :-)
and found another piece for the under 2 y.o.
 and because it was pretty cute,  a new apron panel

A very fun week-end.  Even the weather cooperated.  On the trip home we visited Costco, as I heard they had a good sale going on a new coffeemaker.  Caro - it isn't George, but it is pretty terrific in my kitchen.
It brews single cups, as well as a pot-full.  So far, so good.  I love it!


  1. You did some great fabric shopping Marne! I love the apron and I think the girls will be so happy with the Frozen fabric! Too bad the RV season has come to an end. I can imagine you are going to miss the fun trips!

  2. Lovely pictures. Seems like you had a good time.
