1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 20 - GALLERY on: February 22, 2015 08:19:51 PM
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...

I can't remember what the tentative dates were that we discussed before but the previous Spring STS in 2014 had a sign up March 15 to April 5 and was open until May 10 (last week of May 3-10 for under/over shops)  How do these dates sound for this year's Spring Market?

I'm a maybe - this time period is actually the most insane time of year for my schedule, which means it is really hard for me to get to the post office on time and is pretty much impossible to make new stuff during the swap.

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!

Haha, Alby got to see some trees dropped by beavers too, we have beavers in the lake next to my house and this is actually a big issue of contention for the city (the "save the trees" contingent vs the "save the beavers" contingent. Photos are in his blog!

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.





More photos on his blog (see signature for link)

Alby visited the National Arborteum this afternoon - it was a bit chilly, but he saw lots of stuff even though it is winter.

There is a nice bonsai museum with lots and lots of bonsai


This bonsai was started in 1625!


It was a good day to take pictures at the Capitol columns (these were originally part of the Capitol building and are now in the middle of a field)


He also got to see the native plants exhibit. In high school (many years ago) I volunteered for two summers at the arboretum. Mostly I helped out with the native plants group, when this prairie was just being installed. At the time, this field was completely bare (tilled), we planted hundreds and hundreds of root stock across this field.
