Going to my happy place.

I’m flying to Oregon today to visit my son, daughter-in-law, and adorable granddaughter, Lucy.  I can’t wait to see them.  Spending almost a week out there is worth the forever-long trip each way.  Three flights on United!  Isn’t (or wasn’t) their motto, Fly the Friendly Skies of United?  One can only hope.

Oregon is such a beautiful place with a variety of ecosystems.  I will share some of the sights and adventures with you next Monday unless, of course, I don’t take any photos.  I prefer to enjoy the sights without the layer of a camera lens in the way, but we shall see. 

I have hooked a bit more on Resistance Rug #1.  I like how it’s going.  There will be a border around it with wording, so there will be more to share as I go along.  I’m not rushing through this rug.  Actually, the monochromatic background is tricky.  I have an app on my iPad that takes black and white photos (bwCamera is the name of it) and I’ve been using that to take photos of the rug as I go along. It helps me see where I have to make corrections and how the values are working to create contrast.

I am proud to say that I know an Earth Warrior, who marched in Washington DC in support of the importance of Science and the health of our planet.  I think that deserves a rug design and I will be thinking on that.

There’s a lot of beauty out there on this planet we call, Mother Earth.

This will be my view when I get to my son's home later today.  Grizzly Peak, Ashland, Oregon.

I'm making headway on Resistance Rug #1.  More hooking and changes to come.
