The kids are home from school this entire week. I took them to the Museum of Arts and Design to view the most amazing exhibit called Pricked (extreme embroidery).
And if you remember Julian's embroidery work, you will know that he has an eye for it.
The exhibit isn't for kids....because it is quite.....extreme in concept. But they looked at it and took what they could and made sense of it in their own way. They walked away commenting on a favorite piece....either because of the crystals or the flowers.
All I have to say is.....I must go back. Really, really amazing work. Many of the embroidered pieces were created by men. I need to go back,....alone...... to REALLY look at it and REALLY take it all in.
The only crafty thing accomplished today.....the Floret Stitch
