The photos came today, so I can work on the scrapbook this week, yay!

Blue Bubun helped out at the Silver Spring Maker Faire on Sunday. It was super busy so we were pretty much stuck in the booth all afternoon.

Yesterday Blue Bubun went to the beach!

Crossing the bay bridge (I had a passenger who could take pictures)


Checking out the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach, DE


Having a chat with Zoltar


A close encounter with a large ant at mini golf - he was rescued in the nick of time


Enjoying the view


More pictures on his blog!

Blue Bubun had tons of adventures this weekend, I really need to update his blog this week.

He answered the ice bucket challenge the Patrick Stewart way (with a raspberry infused gin and tonic)


Went on a walk around Greenbelt Lake (hand dug by workers during the New Deal)


Helped out in the garden


Saw part of the Greenbelt Labor Day parade - this one was the NPS truck with Smokey the Bear


Chilled out with some 80s music


Made some salsa from roasted tomatillos

Blue Bubun may try the Patrick Stewart version (with a gin and tonic), as I only have a single mini ice cube tray in my apartment-sized freezer.

I uploaded some photos from his tour of downtown last weekend:

The White House, which is really hard to photograph with the fence. Blue Bubun thought he could squeeze through the fence posts, but I didn't think that would be such a great idea.


The World War II memorial - I hadn't been down to this end of the mall in forever, so this was my first time seeing this one as well.


Another newer memorial - the Korean War memorial. I think this one is very well done, although it is more evocative in the rain and not on a bright sunny day.

Blue Bubun and I had a really stupid mini-adventure - we were supposed to take a class this week, but it got cancelled at the very last minute, and we found out after I had driven all the way to Massachusetts. So, today I drove back again (7 states in 7 hours, each way). We didn't see much, but I did stop at a "scenic view" and got this photo of the morning fog in the valley near Northampton.



We're going to spend the rest of the time that I had taken off this week doing fun crafting stuff at home, tho. And I'll get his DC photos up sometime soon too.

Blue Bubun got a big tour of downtown DC today, but I haven't taken the photos off the camera yet. It is pretty late and I am still getting ready to take off on a short road trip tomorrow morning, so the pics won't be ready until the end of the week.

However, I do have one shot from my phone, at the end of the day we went to a liquid nitrogen ice cream shop:

We're not doing anything much this weekend, but I have some photos from two or three weeks ago that I forgot to upload. Blue Bubun went on a "hike" in Virginia to see Burke Lake.



Good thing he didn't get lost!



Next weekend will be much more exciting, we are going to go downtown to see the monuments on the 200th anniversary of the battle of Bladensburg and the burning of the White House, the Capitol, and the entire Library of Congress during the war of 1812 (this actually happened in 1814 though).

8  wet felted angler fish in Felting: Completed Projects by ptarmic wumpus on: August 13, 2014 04:27:00 PM
I made this one for a swap:



She is wet felted from natural colored Finn, with dyed prefelts for the tail and fins. The mouth and lure are wired for shape, and the teeth are shell spike beads. This was felted around a resist, with the tongue and teeth added later.



I included two insulated wires in the lure, and attached an led to the end with the battery inside of the mouth.

Oh my, I'm glad everyone is ok from those car accidents!

Blue Bubun went on a quick trip to Baltimore last week after work.

The American Visionary Art Museum (highly recommend) has free movies on the lawn during the summer. We went to see "War Games":


After the movie it was late, so Blue Bubun got a quick tour of Federal Hill, where he could see the Domino Sugars sign in the distance


He also had some tasty frozen yogurt at a cafe


Today he is helping with at home with some sewing projects.
