Sunday morning was spent with the girls (Jacie, Kris, Jenni, and Tracy).  Kris graciously offered to make us brunch before heading over to the New Britain Museum of American Art. And well I never turn down good home cooked food.  The menu for the morning:  crème brulee French toast – which had the most delicious caramelized top EVER….bacon, mimosas, and fruit salad (strawberries, kiwi and pineapple).  It was a feast.

I believe the bacon made the trip all the way from Vermont….and you know how I love some delicious bacon.  It’s one of my favorite foods.

 

After gorging ourselves on brunch (more lunch when Tracy finally decided to grace us with her presence)… But us fiber peeps are never bored sitting around spinning/knitting/harassing kitties.  We headed over to the museum to see the  Ruthie Davis shoe exhibit.  Pretty sure we were all in shoe heaven.  She gets her inspirations from buildings, furniture, hello kitty… you know whatever.  Here’s a few of our favs.

It was our first visit to the museum… a nice way to spend the afternoon.  They had a cafe and a little outdoor seating area.  Saturday mornings are free and all the time for members, but the rest of the time it’s only $9.  Go check it out.

I am slightly obsessed with the next picture.  Sewing Needle and Spool by Dalton M. Ghetti.  He makes these tiny little sculptures using number 2 pencils and razors — AND NO MAGNIFYING GLASS.  Is your mind blown yet? Mine was.  It took 2 years or something crazy to make that one piece.
