Cabin Fever Quilt Show 2012, Portola, Ca ~ Part II

More quilts, wall hangings and a very cute pillow. I’ll post more later…this one is picture heavy.

This is my friend, April, and myself in the near future…underneath our stash, giving the thumbs up, and kitties wondering who’s going to feed them now.

20th Annual Cabin Fever Quilt Show ~ Stars Over the Cabin

Today we drove up to Portola, CA so I could go to the Cabin Fever Quilters’ Quilt Show. After dropping my husband off at the river east of town so he could walk to the park where we eat lunch, I drove to the Fr. Burns Social Hall.

This year they moved the show over to the south side of the river on 100 South Pine St. Sunday’s show is from 10-4. $6 to get in at the door. These ladies are awesome quilters…I never go away disappointed.

I took lots of pics, so will break these up into a few different posts. 🙂

First off…here is my one FQ that I bought. I picked out a wild batik to add to my Grandma’s Flower Garden quilt.

LOVE THIS QUILT! Love the quilts on the houses.

Is this not the cutest quilt?! Absolutely love it! Kitty ballerinas!

Western Pacific Railroad Museum ~ from a different view

We go up to Portola, CA to visit the WPRM quite a lot. Usually I post pictures of the whole engine or car, this time I figured I’d take a different view.

All taken yesterday, 3 April 2011:

Western Pacific Railroad Museum Kitty ~ Zephyr

We like to go to Portola’s Western Pacific Railroad Museum quite a bit…and there’s a cat that I always see roaming the rail yard. She’s very friendly and loves her belly rubbed. 🙂

Here she was last October…the first time I met her…she followed me around the yard while I was taking pictures.

This was Zephyr back in April, sunning herself on a cold, sunny April afternoon…

And here is how we found her on Memorial Day (30 May 2010)…in a construction cone next to the old GMC SP Fire Truck.

Portola, Ca ~ Western Pacific Railroad Train Museum

We like to go up to Portola and Sierra Valley quite a bit…and I always see something new at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum to take pictures of. Even though it’s probably the same thing I saw before, just in a different light.

So bear with me…going to post more photos of the area that I took on 11 October 09.

First three photographs are taken just east of Portola on the middle fork of the Feather River…dropped my husband off there and he rode his bike along the path to the train museum where by then, I was walking around waiting for him.

The rest are from the Western Pacific Railroad Museum…at the rail yard. You’ll probably figure out that I like textures.
