My Little Girl is all Grown Up!

Knitted ropes by Nina Willis

This weekend Nina and I went  to see the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show! Entitled Craft Spoken Here, it was brimming with work in every medium, from yarn to pottery and glass to wood.  Not only did they have an incredible show full of artwork, but at the end they had onsite craft making activities. Nina took a liking to the finger knitting area, and turned out the lovely knitted ropes in the picture above!!! Nina had such a great time, I have to remember to make more time to do these things with her. She didn't want to leave!
There was a lot of really interesting stuff, most notably the piece pictured below by Rebecca Medel. This series of wire mesh hangings were a mystery until we looked at it up close--the artist had actually painted the mesh in the center white, creating the illusion of the glowing white ball from every angle.

The show is up until August 12th, so if you find yourself near Philadelphia, it is well worth the trip. The best part of it all is that Nina came home with her first commission---A finger knitted rope scarf for a classmate! I am so proud!
