It looks like Rupert is having a great time! Mmmm, cheese.....

Alby took a quick trip to Silver Spring (a suburb on the immediate DC border where I grew up) last night to see a film at the AFI Silver theater. The theater was built in the 30s, closed in the 80s (I remember seeing a few shows there before it closed), was vacant for 20 years before it was restored by the American Film Institute. Now it shows all kinds of art films and hosts film festivals like SilverDocs.

Alby got to see some snow, briefly:


The "dirty smudges" in the upper corner are actually snowflakes, which were a few inches across for a while.

Alby took a walk through a few neighborhoods of DC yesterday

Classic DC architecture in the Shaw neighborhood


Weird advertising posters


And random appearances of SpongeBob


More pictures on his new blog! http://albyindc.blogspot.com/2014/11/shaw-logan-circle-and-penn-quarter.html

Ok, finally got photos and added these scarves. The wool/silk ones are very lightweight - semi-sheer.

Alby arrived earlier this week! Today he came with me to set up some dyepots for an event tomorrow.

We are near peak color, but there isn't much of a show this year, as the weather has been opposite of what you need to get the best color. There are still a few pretty trees around, and my street is lined with bradford pears that are just starting to  turn.


Alby checks out some farmland in southern Maryland - these used to be tobacco fields, but now they are soy and hay.


This is what happens when you don't mow the lawn for 20 years...


Anyway, he helped husk some black walnuts


And kept an eye on the weld and nettle baths for me


The test woad vat is not working so well. We are going to try some fermentation vats after this weekend, hopefully with more success.


Tomorrow we will go back and do a lot more dyeing!

Rupert headed out on his journey to CA yesterday, but before he left he took a photo from the porch.


Hopefully the flowers will be coming up for spring by the time he gets back! Also it would be nice if the wind left some leaves on the trees for Alby to see.
