We went over the Taco Bridge and back. Something new in this town where Boo lives.
In Ginny’s photo class we got to walk around the Hastings Building in downtown Port Townsend. These are the photos I played around with.
This was when I spun the yarn well enough to make a hat. Even though the hat was too big, it was fun and I loved it.
Wide open spaces and views. These are just a few of the many photos I took that year. I drove out in 2015 and 2017. I think that means I need to go again in 2019.
This is just a gallery of images in the process of turning some fleeces I had kept from the days I had sheep. Some was from my last two lambs in 2011 before I moved out here.
I had wanted to be in Oregon for the eclipse. It would have been a visit to see Boo, since she lives right in the totality line. But it was rather far to go for a 15-minute viewing. So this Hurricane Ridge viewing area was spectacular. There were hundreds of people there. A little local ad hoc eclipse community forming around a 15-minute event.
I had been wanting to see what it was like to get to Seattle without a car. It was a trip. I mean it felt like going on a trip. If I had been driving it would have felt like driving to Seattle. This felt like I was taking a trip. It was different.
These are some photos of the Hansencrafts e-spinner retreat at the studio of Judith Mackenzie near where I live now. Not that it needed a name but they (Judith and Beth Hansen) called it Linsey-Woolsey (noun: a strong, coarse fabric with a linen or cotton warp and a woolen weft. ORIGIN: late 15th century: from linsey, originally denoting a coarse linen fabric (probably from Lindsey, a village in Suffolk, England, where the material was first made) + wool + –sey as a rhyming suffix). Very homey and nostalgic.
