1  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 20 - GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by ptarmic wumpus on: March 14, 2015 05:12:33 PM
Rupert arrived home yesterday from his visit with waterbaby!

Here he is in his box of goodies!


His box was padded with comfy fiber to keep him warm on his trip (and for me to felt with later)!


He brought back a bunch of tasty snacks - chocolate candies, tasty teas, and homemade crackers:


waterbaby made a nifty tea mug rug to go with all that tea, plus Rupert brought souvenirs from the Santa Ana Race Track and LA Public Library as well as an army of jumping frogs!


Rupert found a new friend in LA - Bryan the moose!


Not only did Rupert get a scrapbook, he also got a dvd of his video adventures! We are going to have movie night next week Smiley


Rupert showed me some of his adventures from his scrapbook - here he is working on the set of Grey's Anatomy! He thinks his name will be in the credits, but I'm not so sure...


He brought brochures from tons of places he visited, plus a pretty agate necklace from the Griffith Observatory



Thanks for showing Rupert all around town, waterbaby!

Alby is on his way home! Hopefully he will  make it onto a plane before it starts snowing tomorrow.

I have one more photo to show, which was taken over the holidays at my parents house with their cat, Agent Orange. Orange was nearly 20 and had to be put to sleep this morning, so I thought I'd share this pic of Alby and Orange hanging out on the sofa:

All of my plans for the past two weeks were cancelled due to weather, including a trip to Baltimore yesterday. Alby has been stuck at home for quite a while.



Instead of seeing the sights, he helped to cook


and made this berry custard tart


He also tried his hand at wet felting




And learned how to set in sleeves


Tomorrow there is going to be more sleet and freezing rain. And then it will likely snow on Thursday. So, he is going to get packed up and try to make it to the post office on Wednesday when it is just raining. I think he will be glad to be back in CA after the past few weeks!

It has been cold and stupidly snowing, so all the interesting stuff we were going to do this weekend (and most of last weekend) got cancelled. Alby has mostly been hanging around the house - here he is napping with Bertie:



The good thing is that we got a chance to get most of his album finished while stuck inside yesterday...

Alby is coming to work with me this week - I think we're not allowed to take photos of most of the interesting stuff, but there are some outreach displays in the lobby, like the hyperwall:

Alby visited the Capitol today! It is undergoing repairs and is not so photogenic.


He also saw a lot of neat plants at the US Botanic Gardens, like these lemons


And stopped by the Hirshhorn modern art gallery, where there was lots of weird stuff, like this giant sculpture made from mesh and syrofoam beads.


Tons more pictures on his blog (link in signature)!

Last weekend Alby went for dim sum and met a few other craftsters!

Alby visited the National Gallery of Art today! There are tons of photos on his blog (see link in signature), plus a video of the art installation on the underground walkway in this photo:



The modern art wing is mostly closed for renovations, so he mostly saw earlier works, but we were able to check out the atrium with this massive Calder mobile!

I'm telecommuting today due to snow, Alby went outside to help me clean off my car:

Alby spent a few days in Florida for Christmas - my parents don't really live near anything, and we didn't have time to drive anywhere touristy, so he mostly got to hang out by the pool. Unfortunately it was mostly cloudy and kinda clammy out. We are back in DC now, will try to check out some other stuff this week while I am off work.
