Last week was full of work, so I had to cram all my fun into the weekend. Luckily, there is more than enough to do in Portland.
On Friday my friend Jennifer and I hit up Namaste for dinner, which is an Indian buffet. Usually Indian restaurants only have the buffet at lunch, so I was super psyched to find a place that did the buffet for dinner. I always want a bunch of different stuff, which can be quite spendy, so a buffet is a perfect for me.

The best part of Namaste is that it used to be some sort of family dinning place, so all the decor is all American Logging Nostalgia. I'll take just about any kind of decor if it means I can have unlimited naan. Looking at the pictures now, I'm ready to go back. The food on the plate looks so good, but it could just be that I haven't had dinner yet.

On Saturday my friend Cherri had an open house for her studio, and you could tell that we were a bunch of quilting bloggers because everybody had their cameras.
Cherri's studio itself is lovely, and it's right next to the St. John's bridge. She had a bunch of cookies and milk, which was a very nice touch. She even had little packets of color pencils for everyone. She's a lady how knows how to throw a party!

One of the things I like best about the Portland Modern Quilt Guild is that is such a fun social experience. I got to talk to a lot of people from the guild at this party, and it's fun to get to know everyone better.
