1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 23 Gallery! on: July 12, 2016 11:12:56 PM

It's an experience, for sure. Cheesy Didn't you know, they may "put a bird on it" in Portland, but Eugene is where old hippies go. Grin We still proudly wear our tie dye out here. Grin Grin Grin I think I will have to fabric a little tie dyed item for my visitor too... hmmm...

Oh boy, oh boy, we love tie dye in this house! I'm just an old hippie.

The Oregon Country Fair looks like a great event. I'm glad Flobot got to experience it.

This swap is a blast! It's so much fun to see the TLVs enjoying such varied activities.

That shot of Anana in the inner tube -- hysterical!

And I love the idea that Aurora was a book ambassador.

As for Hawk, well -- she got into the nature theme this week. We visited Beartown Rocks in Clear Creek State Park. Here she is perched on the rocky sign:

She found a cute sprig of oak leaves on the ground, and it was the perfect size for this pose:

Then she tried climbing the big rocks. As you can see, it was an exciting climb for her:

She came home with a few smudges on her legs, but it was worth it. I might have to clean her up with a damp cloth.

"needle, thread and Netflix." I just love that phrase!

What a great project. It's full of personal expression and eye candy.

Hawk is signing on for the state symbol challenge. At last, she was able to have a photo shoot with two, yes two, of Pennsylvania's state symbols.

Yesterday afternoon my friend/coworker rushed in to the library to tell me there is a mountain laurel bush blooming right outside! Hawk got really excited, so I grabbed my camera and off we went.

Mountain laurel, Pennsylvania's state flower, is incredibly dainty but showy at the same time. Once you've seen a bush in bloom, it's hard to forget.


See more photos on Hawk's blog:  www.hawkpa.blogspot.com

Hawk was so tickled with the whole experience, she insisted on an up-close shot of her pointing at the blooms.

Later in the day (on my way home from work), we walked back the road to our local dam. I had seen an eastern hemlock (Pennsylvania's state tree) back there a few days ago. Although the light was fading, we managed to get a couple of decent shots.

We couldn't get to the tree itself, but here's a shot of Hawk sitting on the rope railing, next to a utility pole. The hemlock is behind her.

And a zoomed-in closeup showing Hawk's beak with the hemlock needles.

I took a photo today with Flobot that I just HAD to share. I discovered this a couple of weeks ago in one of the parking garages downtown. Isn't it great?! I've no idea who put it up or why, but it's great.


WHEW! This is a great relief. Preparation is so important, and we all know how many bad things happen in parking garages, especially if we watch TV.

As must as I dislike creepy, scary things, Halloween, and the color combo orange and black, I have to say:


I've said it before: artsycandice, you are a true artist.

And, because I thought to look up other "state things". Look, this whole time our state drink has been sitting in the fridge... milk! Grin Grin Grin

That's so funny, because yesterday my co-worker found out that milk is Pennsylvania's state drink! I almost took a picture of Hawk with a glass of milk, but I'm holding out for an Eastern hemlock and/or mountain laurel. Still several weeks till the mountain laurel is in bloom.

Thanks for the info about the Douglas fir, artsycandice. Wow, how did you get Flobot to perch so carefully on that pole?

Gosh! The projects in this thread are so motivational.

Those purple socks are gorgeous! Now I REALLY want to master knitting with dpn's.

Oh do it do it!! Im a sock pusher.

Im a very newbie knitter and DPNs have been an experience. I dont know too much about technique but getting the right DPN has made all the difference. So far I love knitpicks wooden ones and I am trying out karbonz for the first time this week. I usually use magic loop on addi turbo sock rockets. They are magic. Cheesy

Looks like I'll need to invest in some new needles.
