I just returned from a fabulous trip to NYC. Two items of note on that trip -- daughter, Erica, graduated from NYU and I visited the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in the Carnegie Mansion (beautiful place) and viewed the felting exhibit there. What a wonderful exhibit -- I got inspired to create! They had garments, furniture, rugs, hanging tapestries, etc. The Palace Yurt was like walking through a beautiful dream! Surrounded by beautiful nuno felted fabric panels that took over the conservatory of the house I thought about my own studio here in Illinois and wished I could incorporate some of these ideas there. Amazing!
