Many of you won't know this yet, but I spent much of last week in Seattle on a rather expensive medical thingy. I am hopeful that this expensive medical thingy is going to finalize a diagnosis so that I can start to get better again; but, I won't know that until the end of next month when I get to go on another very expensive medical thingy. But enough about that. All you need to know is that there is hope for me yet, but it's not confirmed.
We took things easy on our journey and spent most of our time travelling. I did, however, make it into two yarn shops during my trip. I bought some weaving supplies and some fibre samples for spinning including seacell and corn fibre.
I discovered some beautiful sources of inspiration for future pattern designs.
And these adorable little sheep that live in La Conner.
There were many amazing things to see as we drove through the country between Anacortes and Seattle.
One of the things I found most striking, in a beautiful yet horrifying sort of way, was this facilty.
I don't know what it did, except make lots of smoke/steem.
