Oooh Say Can You See.....Baltimore?

Went to Baltimore yesterday, Don had to put a window in for his sister. After some yummy homemade salsa we piled into Lu's car with nephew Nate and headed to the Inner Harbor to see Lu's office. She is an architect for Ayer Saint Gross and their office is at Tide Point.
Tide Point used to be a Proctor & Gamble soap factory... is an old map that shows it there in the middle at the top of the bump just to the left of the three circles....that's Fort McHenry there on the lower right...our National Anthem was penned in the waters off the Fort.
All the buildings at Tide Point are named after P&G products. Her office is the building to the left called "Joy" and the one on the right is "Cascade". It is being renovated...Under Armour is headquartered there and across the road.
There's a huge Domino Sugars factory right next get very sticky!

Here is a picture of what the building looked like before becoming offices...this held the train tracks....
...and here is a bit of what it looks like now!
Luanne has a great office...
...and some huge windows....
....and an amazing view of the Inner Harbor....
....I really don't know how they get any work done!
Just outside of the buildings is a waterfront promenade....Michael Phelps is supposed to live across the harbor in one of those buff colored buildings just at the bow of that boat. What an amazing place....Baltimore is a great city to live in and visit.
Baltimore is especially nice when your sister-in-law is cleaning out her closets!! And some of that is Liberty of London fabrics!:)
Not only did we have a fun day in Baltimore....I did some sewing last night. Started on my Asterisk quilt for Round 7 of ORBC Quilt-Along. Decided to use some coal Kona and batiks because....
...while in Baltimore we also went to IKEA and I was inspired....Houses on dark grey....$3.99 per yard....56" wide... for the backing...doesn't get any better than that!
Luanne and Nate...thanks for a great day....what's next?:) xoxo


  1. Stopping by from ORBC. I just moved to Baltimore (literally, like a week ago!) so it's nice to see your pictures for a future day trip.

  2. Your Asterisk is going to be awesome! Hey, guess what? You just came up on my Gogole Reader as a "recommended source," guess you're famous now!
