off to Sequim….

November 29, 2009

My second trip to Sequim is about to take place.  The weather to some would be gloomy and drizzly.  To me it is Washington.  Glad I’m leaving today, as last night there arrived a couple and a small wailing child who, as it turned out, wailed through the evening and again this morning.  It is quiet now.  They must have gone out for the day, or possibly just for breakfast.  

I am going downstairs to check out, send someone up for my bags, then will start the monumental drive to Sequim — 40 miles?

I met a woman yesterday who was a checker at the local grocery store.  She has never been out of the county, let alone to California.  She said she would probably not recognize it even when she got there. Totally serious, she was.  Yesterday stopped at the Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store.  Found a few objects d’art I couldn’t leave there as well as a lovely pink beaded medallion necklace made with tiny seed beads — you know the kind I don’t use any more because I can’t see well enough to use them — for an absolute steal of a price.  If it’s open today, I’ll go back and get the one with an American eagle on it.  The woman had just put them in the case that day, saying that they were from the estate of a very well-known, recently deceased Native-American woman from Neah Bay.  She had donated many things to Habitat for Humanity.  I tell you, some of the things in that store are amazingly priced, especially the furniture.  There are tables that people would give hundreds of dollars for in California that are on sale here for only a hundred dollars.  

Of course, I need no furniture, but if I ever lived near here, would go hastily to that store for my stuff.

Ok.  Going now.  Will most likely stop in Kala Point for a last breakfast at the Dream City Market and Cafe.  Looking forward to that.  Then on to Sequim, where I will find my little house and do my laundry, and even pack some stuff to send home.  That will be the fun part, realizing that my load will be much lighter on the way back.  Might even send stuff around Wednesday (to my son to be sure someone is there to receive it) and lighten the load even more!

I like things like that.

Here are some details of a piece called ‘competition’.

And more….. the piece is about 2.5′ x 3′.  The portions here are 7-8″ swatches.

I may even show the whole piece one day.

On my way.  Hope your day is to your liking.

Later……….. from Sequim.
