The sun was even shining on our way there and Mt Rainier was peeking over the trees. Not much sun the rest of the trip, but that is normal for this area. The plus side of all that rain is that things are very green and growing.
We were there in April of 2010 to help build a geodesic dome greenhouse. The area where the greenhouse sits was completely cleared, this is how it looks now. I wrote four blog posts about building it and those four posts get more hits than anything else I've written.
We were there to help celebrate a grand daughter's high school graduation. Here she is with her Cheerleading/t-shirt quilt.
As we were packing up to leave yesterday morning I quickly grabbed some leaves in hopes of using them for printing.
I particularly love the ferns, they don't do well in our high desert climate.
The Weekly Leaf
This weeks leaf was drawn onto freezer paper, cut out, ironed to my fabric and then printed using paintstiks. The color was applied to and then brushed off the freezer paper.
I'll have more to share about this leaf in a few months :).
