Saturday was going home day for us, but we had a bit more to do first.
We had a slow morning, did a little packing up, then went to Tillamook to Starbucks for coffee and pastry because we were going there anyway to visit the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center.
Located in an old elementary school situated in farm land just east of the Tillamook Cheese Creamery, it is a living, working museum dedicated to the history and preservation of fiber arts.
We had been there once before, a long time ago. They have bi-monthly exhibits, and this time we were pleased to see that quilter's works from the Puget Sound area were on display.The needlework, felting, quilting and combinations of textile work were just amazing. Such skill and creativity!
During week days this place is busy with different fiber arts groups coming in to work and share.
Back at the cabin we ate lunch, finished off the dregs of some Tillamook ice cream, cleaned up and packed up, and were on our way back to Seattle by 2:00.
The coast highway is jammed with tourists in August, so we decided to take the back roads through the woods and over the mountains. To say its curvy is an understatement, but Tom likes driving it and I manage to hang on.
We had a good little vacation. By Saturday night we were settled in back home. By Sunday morning I was out picking some new flowers.
Now it's almost a week later. The flowers are faded. It's time to pick some more.
