Historic Cottage & Mangoes

Back to work for at least 2 more weeks on the cottage and this is the result.  The inside still needs some professional help.  

Here's our historic plaque from the city of Cheney it is brass and very heavy so we still have to figure out what wall can hold it.Over the mountains back to Seattle.  It was a bright and sunny day.  Sorry for the buggy windshield it is summer after all. Back in Seattle we spent a day at Pike Place Market shopping. 

The quilt store Undercover Quilts is there. Even though it is small, the store has lots of variety and many finished quilts on display. 
Mary Downes' Bark Park quilt was displayed in the window.   This store is a must stop for me whenever I'm is Seattle.   
Flowers everywhere was the theme of the day at Pike Place Market.
After an activity filled vacation we are back on Kauai just in time for mango season.  The Kauai quilt show is next week I'm going to be demonstrating Hawaiian quilting there.  I looking forward to a busy, fun summer.
