    The MG’s is a four person quilt guild–at least we joke that we are.  Our members are Robin, Connie, Monica and me.  From time to time we take a road trip.  A week and a half ago, we went to Seattle–minus Monica, who had to cancel at the last minute.  We started out by going to a Mariner’s game, courtesy of my parents, who are season ticket holders.

    Tickets in the Diamond Club–in the third row–are hard to beat!  It had rained HARD in the morning, but by game time, the roof was open and the sun was out.  My sister, Sally, did a “stand-in” for Monica.  We even saw a (rare) win!

    After the game we had time to visit Pike Place Market.

    Lucky for us–and them–Undercover Quilts was still open.  We all did a little damage.

    We had a quiet evening in my mom and dad’s condo.  Well, quiet, unless you consider constant chatter noisy!  The next morning it was back to the Market for breakfast a Lowell’s.  My dungeness, avocado and tomato omelet was amazing!

    The flowers, both inside and outside the Market, were beautiful.

    I’d have fresh flowers everyday if I lived there.

    Outside, the tops of the buildings are lined with flowers, too.

    Outside things were a bit of a mess because of construction going on.

    But someone had a sense of humor, and I just had to take a picture of these “construction workers.”

    Oh, and this one, too!

    I had been wanting to visit Sarah at Fabric Crush, so that was our first stop Monday morning.  Her shop in Wallingford is so wonderful.  It’s in an old schoolhouse and has the most incredible windows.

    Imagine my delight when I discovered Trophy Cupcakes was in the same building!  It had been at least a half hour since breakfast, so we treated ourselves.

    Then we were off to the Quilt Loft in Ballard.

    Then it was time to head south and toward home.  We had a lunch in Des Moines (yes, there’s a Des Moines in Washington) and then visited Carriage Country quilt shop there.

    All in all, a great road trip!
