All OFFFer it.

My trip South was just what the doctors had ordered.

3 days of friends, fun, interesting discoveries, music and sunshine.

This was interesting. The flavour and mouth-feel are both a bit wierd. I would not recommend it unless you like unusually thick beverages that are hard to drink but not satisfyingly thick enough to feel like a milkshake. The research I do for all of you .

Canby and Oregon City were filled with lovely, friendly people. There was a wonderful view from our hotel room up the river and the fairgrounds were just a short drive away.

My favourite picture? Tina and her new bunny!

I was lucky enough to spend a little bit of time with the PNW contingent of FT out in the grass and was so pleased to finally meet Sheila.

I came home with several of her buttons, I'll try and take a picture but they have so much depth and detail it may be hard to truly capture their beauty. My new circulars should arrive soon. In my excitement, I left without a cord!

The circs are amazing, I can see where you were easily distracted! It was such a nice surprise to see you! Maggie's new fave drink is sweetened green tea :-)

Glad you had a good time at OFFF. Once you see the beauty of Sheila's buttons, it's difficult not to indulge in them. Love the bunny pic, too.

Whoa, that milkshake thing looks weird! I think I'll just stick to freshly-made milkshakes from the ice cream parlor.
The "flirty" ruffles are still killing me (I'm not sure I think they're so damn flirty anymore, hence the quotation marks). I don't think I will have it done this weekend but definitely by the following weekend.

It was so awesome to meet you Angela. I wish that we could have had more time to just sit and visit!
I too love the picture of Tina and her new bunny...Bijou I believe is her name.
Your circulars will be on their way to you today. I hope that they make your exquisite knitting even more fun!
Big Hugs!!!!

Why on earth did you put that stuff in your mouth?! Just the thought of it makes me shudder a little. Ewwww.
PS: I want a bunny! All your fault.

Those glass buttons are stunning. When do we get to feast our eyes on pictures of yours?

What a sweet little bunny Tina has! Glad you enjoyed OFFF. That not-quite-milkshake sounds kind of gross.

How can anything from Ben & Jerry's be gross??? Doesn't sound too appealing, though.

What a cute bunny!

I'd be afraid that it would taste like melted Cherries Garcia. My claim to fame - I invented B&J's Reverse Cherries Garcia. Too long a story for here but I'll blog about it someday.

The Ben & Jerry's milkshake looks very weird! I think I'll trust your judgment and refrain from taste testing it. That bunny is amazingly fluffy and adorable.
