We are back from NYC, blistered feet and all. We had a super great time! Months ago I bought tickets to "The Book of Mormon", before it had even opened. It was tempting to sell those tickets now that the show is a big hit, but we didn't. It was funny and offensive and funny and surprisingly sweet. See it if you can.
We also got to stop by the Textile Arts Center to see the "Play" exhibit that my quilt "Why Always War?" is a part of. Here is the fabric banner that I think show curator Joetta Maue did to welcome folks to the exhibit:
Check out Joetta's blog here. Unfortunately, I didn't get this artist's name, but here is part of another piece that makes great use of vintage appliques:
There is a catalog for the exhibit available from Blurb here.
