Seattle Day 4, Burlington, La Conner, Salmon House

I'm having a really wonderful time here in the USA. All the "old" and "new" people I meet here is so wonderful. Well today we (Marne, Marne's friend Alyane, she's a professional quilter and I) went to the Outletfabric in Burlington and the Quiltmuseum in La Conner (see pictures and post down below). We had a lot of fun/laughs during our trip today. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed everything!!!!

And oh dutch girls, this is to make you jealous, sorry. In the outletfabric they had this time a special offer, you could buy double-width fabric in pounds. You pay 4 dollar for a pound. So I bought 1,5 kg (about 3.1 pounds) for the back of my rose-quilt, that's about 3 yards (3 metres), can you believe it. PHOTOS SEATTLE DAY 4

Well you know how exhausting quiltshopping is. Doesn't that sound decadent. So in the evening I invited Marne and Elaine for dinner at the Ivar's Salmon house. I was there as well in september last year and it's a very nice place to be. We had to wait half an hour before we had a place, but then we got a beautiful windowseat. In the USA you can't make reservations at a restaurant. You just go and see if there is some empty space, and if not you wait. Well we amused ourself with a sample of wine (Californian and Riesling) and with the cook!!! Isn't the style of this restaurant wonderful, it's typical NorthWestPacific Indian.

Wauw, wat een geweldige koopjes!!! Misschien moet ik toch maar eens zelf die kant op... ;) Maarre... omdat jij er nu toch bent, heb ik nog maar een mailtje naar Marne gestuurd met wat wensen! :) Ik hoop dat je het niet erg vindt Carolien, anders moet je het zeggen hoor!

Jaloers?? Hoezo jaloers??? Helemaal niet (mag ik liegen?). Al kan ik helemaal niet quilten, van al die stofjes en foto's word ik toch wel hebberig. En oh, wat zou ik graag eens zelf komen kijken ;) Veel plezier nog, de komende dagen!
