and headed into Chicago w/Alex, youngest son.
We wanted to view the Matisse exhibit before it closed on June 20th. It was an interesting exhibit and showed how Henri Matisse was inspired by other artists & developed his own way of expressing his ideas.
I think Alex was more impressed by the jade displays, ancient coins, blades, and Sound & Vision exhibit.
The Sound & Vision exhibit was in gallery 188, Modern Wing - It was unique! On one wall there was a tv set on and when cars zoomed accross the screen, they sounded a musical tone! Each lane of traffic had a unique tone. Traffic as art - awesome.
The Lions at AIC are still decked out with the Blackhawks Helmets.
I have tried two more times to get a simple pink heart completed
That reverse work just gets me confused
I'll be moving along & all of a sudden .... oops!
Trying again this afternoon
You'd think by now, I'd be able to get
a larger bit of tatting completed ...
I'm going to try marking the pattern as I go along
and triple counting the rings before closing them
There must be a trick to opening a closed ring - I just get a mess
Meanwhile, I emptied my shuttles & made some smaller motifs
for cards (and for friends who requested some! --- I haven't forgotten)
Perhaps I just need MORE shuttles!!! LOL
