weekend in photos

saturday breakfast
a la grub:


making tags
and
sending packages:




downtown
at sunset
after
a lecture
at the
smithsonian:


these were
trials for
the wall of yarn.
not sure
how
i feel about it...
they are
real insects
i sewed onto
the knitted
squares:




i also studied
all weekend
but
that's
no fun
to photo
graph.

HEY! It's a sprucewood beetle!! Eero told me you guys collected these when you visited. They make me quiver, even when they're sewn into lovely squares.
