I spent most of last week in Portland, Oregon or on a plane or in airports (Australia is a long way from Portland, just like it’s a long way from almost anywhere..)
I didn’t have time to get out to fabric stores in Portland, but I did get to Powell’s City of Books.
Wow, what a place!! It covers a whole city block and has more than a million new and used books.
I spent quite a lot of my brief shopping time just in this one store.
A selection of children’s and young adult novels came home with me, as did a Jacques Pepin cookbook and this great preloved sewing book:
I’ve only had time to flick through it so far but it looks like a great resource.
Does anyone else have this book?
What do you think of it? Worth lugging it half way round the world!?
