The Goods: Enough Chunky Rowan for a classic pullover (or so I hope), and some Cherry Tree Possum Lace weight. I may despise the Possum, but the yarn is lovely. If anyone has some suggestions for lace shawl patterns please leave them in the comments.
I went to Anaheim Hills/Yorba Linda expecting more out of my yarn shop visit than Nixon's Library and Birthplace. Funny how inspiration catches you off guard like that.
Nixon left office before I was born, so in reality I knew nothing about him other than the Watergate fiasco (for those that are curious, there is no exhibit for Watergate but there is a gallery being built). I had no idea he ventured to China and other parts of the world in the name of Peace. It's a shame his Watergate legacy overshadows that.
I didn't get to peruse the Museum as carefully as I'd like because Maya was Cranky Fussypants, but I did get a lot of time in the Gardens.
Nixon Flower Garden
I also spent considerable time in the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit: More Than Words. It awoke a part of me that has been put aside for a long time. I'd like to play around in the arts like I did in the past.
That's how you measure a good exhibit.
