Dayle and I took a drive west along the Columbia River, crossed the river headed north, then headed east on the other side of the river, to Washougal, Washington. There resides an unassuming old building that houses the Pendleton Mill Store where you can get good deals on their products and discontinued patterns, plus yardage of their beautifully woven fabrics.
They have the most beautiful display of blankets! These are all Chief Joseph designs in different colors.
See the old style striped blankets?
The colors are wonderful.
What blanket design is your favorite?
I tried to talk Dayle into getting a vest.. but he said "it isn't me". I think he'd be cute in this! :-)
We got a couple things, I'll show you below. Then after we left the store we drove through the old town of Washougal and then drove on to Camas and checked out their historic old town. I liked this old theater. That is a lot of movies, how small are the film rooms?
On our drive home we traveled up the Sandy River and I pulled into Dabney State Park where I hopped out of the car and walked down to the edge of the river to get a photo of how swollen the river is with all our recent rains.
This morning I took a few photos of my bargain purchases.. a laptop bag and a notebook. I wanted to downsize what I took to my meetings and the notebook was just the thing. And who doesn't need a laptop bag in beautiful colors? :-)
I've got this notebook all set to attend the Friends of Multnomah Falls board meeting this evening. Now that I am not president any longer I have a LOT less paperwork to take to the meetings. :-D
No more piles of agendas and reports - just a handwritten report.
Well, I have to rush.. pack my swim bag and meet Gracie for our lap-swimming. What plans do you have this week? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
