Back Home After Tacoma, Washington

We had a great drive up and back from the Pacific West Quilt show in Tacoma.  The weather couldn’t have been nicer….sunny and warm everyday!  The show was fun and we met a lot of new gals and greeted many friends we see at Sew Expo in February.  Thanks to all who came to the show.

On the way up and on the way back home we stopped in Kalama, Washington for our shopping spree.  Tina found a wonderful tall metal sculpture for her yard.  I think it will probably be shown off near her fabulous chicken house.  I’ll take new photo of her garden to show you.

We had 2 delicious luncheons at our favorite Antique Deli attached to a couple of antiques shops.  Dhara is the chef and chief cook and bottle washer with a couple of friends.  She makes the most wonderful soups and sandwiches.  We ate at the Deli and then took a BIG container of her chicken salad and a whole loaf of home baked bread in Lucy, the motor home for later lunches – clever.

Antique DeliPlease stop by the Deli if you are near Kalama!  It is only 30 minutes from Portland so we are making our luncheon menu plans for September and the Northwest Quilting Expo.  September 22 – 24.  Yummy!


  1. It's been years since I've stopped in Kalama. Thanks for the hints on good places to stop and eat there. Sounds wonderful!
