My daughter and I went to our local nature center today to see their special exhibit "Wings of Fancy" which features a room full of *real* butterflies you can walk around in. They do it every summer and it is just an amazing experience. If one is anywhere near you- you should go! The most amazing, beautiful butterflies live and up close! After walking around and taking a few pictures, I sat on a bench to rest while DD kept looking around at everything.
Of course I brought my knitting, so I figured I'd get a few rows in while I kept an eye on Kayleigh. I'm knitting the Amanda's squatty Sidekick handbag from knittingdaily.com with this amazingly beautiful yarn I received in the last swap from IZA.
It rested there for at least a minute. and it wasn't the least bit upset that I took its picture.....
isn't that cool?
and when I got home- my secret goodies arrived!! what a day!
