Road Trip!

We took off on a little road trip yesterday...travelling to Central Oregon to visit the little town of Sisters that used to be a cute little sort-of-artsy-sort-of-touristy town. It is about a two-hour drive from here, Well, I haven't been there for a year or two, and it has really developed into a fake 'cowboy' town with lots of cowboy themed shops. It has lost most of its charm, which is sad. A bit of good knitting news, though--a great quilt shop, The Stitchin' Post, now sells yarn (although they have the annoying practice of grouping all the yarns by color). Anyway, we drove up on Highway 20 and drove home on the Old McKenzie Highway, where we stopped and I took this picture of Tim and Mt. Washington.

We stopped and did a little hike at Proxy Falls, a nice little loop trail on the Old McKenzie Highway. The dogs truly appreciated the chance to get out and stretch their legs and meet some new people on the trail. This late in the summer, the falls are a little low and not as impressive as they are in the spring, but this is still a nice hike and a good way to end our day.

AND--I knit not one, not two but three fish: two blues one (one is shown here) and the last pinkypurly one. Now I need to block and assemble and do an edge on the quilt, and voila, another Christmas present done. I'll post a pic of the complete fishiness in the next day or so.

I go to sisters every year for the outdoor quilt show, and I agree about the "cowboy" theme.

The Stitchin' Post is a great store :) Glad u had a good trip.
