Monday- Modern Art... you tell me.

Modern Art... ??? According to my son this is Contemporary Art. Can you guess what it's about?
I can give you a hint, since it's not totally complete (check back in a few days for perhaps updated pictures and maybe a video presentation.) This is supposed to be a metaphor of a human body simulating a trust between a doctor and patient in the process of a gastric bypass. That's a quick description, not at all exclusive of what his art presentation is all about.

Then there is this... the marvelous bracelet I won in Jillybeans contest. I took a picture of it next to my glasses so you could see how large the beads are. They are handmade too, and absolutely beautiful. I had them on my wrist earlier to try them out and well let's just say I was looking pretty good. LOL


I must say I am just a little afraid to go to sleep tonight. The spiders, and we are not talking about tiny spiders, are invading the house. These guys are HUGE and people eating spiders. My son just killed 2 of them within 5 minutes both only feet from my bed. If I were superstitious then I might believe there was a third waiting to pounce as soon as I let down my guard.

So if I don't blog tomorrow, let the authorities know I was eaten by a man eating king sized spider or worse spider family. I am starting to itch already... there are no spiders on me, there are no spiders on me.

I designed a new dishcloth tonight. I think I like it. I need to write up the pattern still and then knit another to make sure I got it right. Hopefully I can show you all later this week.

Ok I am off for the night. I WILL see you tomorrow, because there are no more spiders.

Lovely bracelet!! Your spider story reminds me of Harry Potter following the spiders from Hagrid's Hut!

That would scare the ever living snot out of me. Really. I had a nest of brown recluse spiders hatch in my apartment in college and was bitten. The whole top of my hand turned black and I race to the hospital to get it fixed. Not really interested in doing that again. Maybe you should go to a hotel for the evening?

We have a lot of man eating spiders in our basement and luckily (knock on wood) they have not made it upstairs where we sleep. I like spiders the best when they are outside of my house.

I do hope you explain more about your son's creation--the what does this mean? part. I'm afraid I don't understand--but, then again I've never really understood modern art.

Your bracelet is just beautiful!! I love those beads, so colorful!

Spiders you say? I don't like spiders!! And here I thought I might stop up there some day for a visit. When is it not spider season?

Ack, spiders! I found one on my bed, right next to my leg. I think he was finding a good spot to sink his fangs into...until I crushed him. Legs flying....anyway.

Can't wait to see the new cloth. The bracelet is gorgeous. Don't you love winning stuff?

I'll send your spider back to you now...LOL

Yick, spiders! We once crawled into a cave that had daddy longlegs hanging on the roof of the entrance. Or maybe they were Grand-daddy longlegs, they were huge. I felt creepy crawlies all over me for days!

Love the bracelet. Bet you really look great in your new bling.

The art looks like a bunch of wooden box kites to me. I am more of a representational art person.

May your day be wonderful.
