Another fun day

My trip east has been a lot of fun. Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with Norma Schlager and we went to The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) on Columbus Circle. The weather was gorgeous and everyone and their uncle was out in force.....the bikers, the skateboarders, the runners, and of course the ubiquitous horse and buggies. The museum was in the middle of some new installations simony part of it was open. We saw a wonderful jewelry exhibit and one called Flora and Fauna which included some lovely art quilts including one by Jane Sassaman. What fun to have someone we recognized. The only other thing open was an artists studio and all I can say is what fun we had. The artist is Patrice Yourdon and she has a thing for screws.

We spent a lovely time talking to her. Unfortunately she doesn't have a website.
We then had lunch up in the restaurant and had a good chuckle this morning. Somehow Norma and I got back each others credit cards. They were both black and since we had the same thing for lunch the amounts were the same. Priority mail, here we come!
We had some time to kill before we headed for our respective trains so we walked across the street to the Time Warner building which houses a bunch of upscale shops. This is one of the very large sculptures that sits in the lobby....
Reminds me of a Botero...there is a female to match but she doesn't garner as much attention!

Yes, it was fun! As you know I didn't have my camera, so I have directed people to your blog.
I like Fiona. Will she be your "flat Sammy"?

Came over from Norma's blog. . .

When Blogger rotates my pictures, I have luck going back to the source file for the pictures, rotating it there to compensate for Blogger's obstinancy and then re-importing it.

Too bad she doesn't have a website. Thanks for sharing! Karen

Hi, Sherryl. Stopped by from Norma's blog to see the screw Pinafore--that's quite a show-stopper! Really beautiful. Also enjoyed your textile work and I can see you love being a Grandma! Me, too. In fact, I've just written posts about grandmothers...seems to be on my mind lately.
