Spring Break

I'm afraid I did not get my March Finish Along goal done this past month, but I had a good excuse... a very nice Spring Break trip!  I've spent the last few weeks getting ready for the trip, and traveling.  We only went 4-5 hours away, to Seattle, Washington, but it just as well could have been another country, as we stayed right downtown in the center of the city.  The people watching was incredible, and we must have seen people from many dozens of countries.

We did a few of the tourist attractions, including the Space Needle, a tour of the Boeing plant, a stroll through Pike Street Market, Pioneer Square, a few ferry boat rides and a trip to the Microsoft Headquarters.

We also headed over to Olympic National Park, although much of it was closed.  We did manage to get in some great beach time though!

Besides a few visits to friends and family, I also got to meet Debbie, of "A Quilter's Table".  She was kind enough to meet me at our hotel for a very nice visit.  She even brought me a few goodies!  Thanks Debbie! I hope we can get together again in person!!


  1. Wondered where you've been, Becky! Glad you had a great time. My DH's uncle and aunt used to live in Seattle, so I've been a couple of times...a good 30 years ago now, but your photos brought back great memories. :-) Thanks!

  2. Sounds like fun! Nice to see your smiley face (and a window full of sewing machines!!)

    : )

  3. I figured you were in the garden... but then again... it may still be a bit early. Seattle is a fun place to visit!!!

  4. how fun! I feel like I've been to that place with the sewing machines before!

  5. Sounds like a really fun trip! And what fun that we got to meet up! ;-)
