A large percentage of the 4,800 Artists showed up, plus many family and friends, the Museums "Third Thursday" event, and even Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles. It was nuts! When I got there the line to the MAEP was only as far as Ancient Art and it took about 25 minutes to reach the exhibit, but when I walked out the line was through the entire museum beginning at "China", which is the hall above the Museum Lobby! I'll go back another time when no-one is there.

I wouldn't have made these if I'd just thrown away the soft knit years ago...but no, I had to keep it and eventually conjure up a project to make with it.

When Caron was here for my Quilt Party she was starting on hanging sleeves and so I copied one she left behind. I made about 150. She only needs 1,000!
I'm looking forward to Thursday for opening night of the "Foot In The Door" exhibit at Minneapolis Institute of Art where I have a piece hanging. One out of circa 4,800!!

I think that title would just kill the New York Times Best Seller list.
I'd have to examine all my notes and come up with a body of recipes to dissect.
It could be so stressful it would be the death of me, but it would be a crime not to.
Shall I start with liver and onions? Or some kind of kidney recipe? Swedish Blood Pudding? Something with artichoke hearts? Leg of lamb? Rib roast? Pigs feet?

"World Health Organization ~ Greatest Hits (Music CD)"
(you have to go to the 'next 50' to see the above quoted)
Yes, it actually says "World Health Organization"...not "The Who".
Don't miss out on the World Health Organizations best hits! Remember these?
"W.H.O.oooooo are you? Whose W.H.O., whose W.H.O.?
W.H.O.oooooo are you? Whose W.H.O., whose W.H.O.?
I woke up in a cheap patel
where a bed bug knew my name.
He said "I'll be coming home with you
and I will never go away"
"People try to put us d-d-down, (talkin' 'bout my gonorrhea)
Just because we get around (talkin' 'bout my gonorrhea)
Things they do look awfully c-c-cold (talkin' 'bout my gonorrhea)
I hope I die before I get old (talkin' 'bout my gonorrhea)
This is my gonorrhea,
this is my gonorrhea, baby..."
And the popular Christmas hit:
"I want Human Pappilomavirus for Christmas!
And only Human Pappilomavirus will do.
No Chlamydia, no Tuburculosis, I only like Human Pappilomavirus..."
~lol~ I crack myself up!
Many of you might not remember "Enza" from the Spanish flu of 1918:
"I knew a birdie, it's name was Enza, I opened the window and in flew Enza!"
In all seriousness, the Hennepin County Library employee who made this mistake might have done it on purpose as a slam for Pete Townshends current child sex offender problem...

What do you call a man with no arms and no legs, in a lake?
What do you call a man with no arms and no legs in a pile of leaves?
What do you call a woman with one leg and one arm?
(Bet she doesn't have a leg to stand on!) :-D
**update at 11:30 pm, When Eric and I told these jokes to Isaac he said "I've never heard thos before!"**
No sewing machines were buzzing, but there was rotary cutting and lots of knitting needles clicking away on socks and sweaters.
Carn, Sarah and I worked on french knots for Carns project And Still Counting.
I hope that everyone who knows her can complete some more quilts for her, so she can reach her Memorial Day deadline.
In my excitement of dreaming of her completion she pointed it out that the deadline only marks the end of Phase One. Phase Two is sewing sleeves to the back of 1,000 of the blocks so that it is suitable for hanging in any venue.
I think she really needs a happy push on this; because as any project that's so monumental and emotional, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and feel defeated about reaching completion.
And Carn needs help with publicity, getting the word out, getting hanging venues and such.
And I wish I knew someone who could professionally photograph it for free, and then another person who could print her Artist postcards for free.
In some stream of discussion I brought up that I wouldn't take a $5,000.00 Visa card in exchange for those people going through my closet, embarassing me on national television, standing in that mirrored closet of shame, and filming me privately when I'm wearing bad fashion. (Which is every minute of every day)
Carn and Sarah said they would go for it, if the show was actually about showing you how to dress for success at places like Kohls and JC Penney. Carn said that anybody could find fashion in NYC, but try finding it at Herbergers in St. Cloud Minnesota! I forgot what she said about Herbergers, something about velour sweat suits and clothing for ages 70 and up.
So that gave me the idea to write to that show, and Herbergers and Kohls and tell them they should set something up... maybe Carn and Sarah will get a phone call! ;-D
I just finished listening to all three of this series and it was really a fun read...or "listen" in my case.
