Tea Pics

i had to get one of these. no flash. no tripod. no commercial use. apparently blogging is o.k.the two small rooms were quite dark. so no complaining.i could have spent all day looking at these two beauties. but i would have needed a chair and extra batteries to snap every patch i wanted to.i did promise tea pics didn't i.the teapot was on the right side and i rotated once to the left. the teacup was high up and upside down.a simple web amongst all the fancy stuff. did i say simple. shame on me.this is for our friend Eileen.and this one too.i have pics of the other quilts. but that's enough for today. our museum is lovely and my friend treated me to Sunday Jazz Brunch in the museum cafe. the wine and the salmon cakes were delicious. thanks J.

What a fab quilt- I just wouldn't've believed the detail in it without those close ups.

Thanks for the trip.

wowie. wowie. wowie. what a quilt. Love the little snippets of fabric. This is more like a work of art/painting.

It is almost worth the price of admission to imagine you juggling your camera around to get those shots. :-D Ok.. is that one really an owl? Or a wolf in disguise? Oh wait a minute.. I looked at him closer.. yes.. that is his red book.
Thanks for the tour of the museum!
ha-ha.. my word for today is "corks me"
