Pricked: Extreme Embroidery

I recently visited the Museum of Arts & Design to view the latest Embroidery exhibit. It's across the street from the MOMA. I finally mustered up the patience to maneuver myself into midtown, elbow my way through the holiday tourists, all to view some EXTREME EMBROIDERY. Seriously, I get excited about the randomest things! It was definitely worth ever minute. I scrutinized ever stitch and walked away very inspired to start stitching again in 2008. My Experimental Textiles Professor in College would be very proud! I searched the web to find some of the artist's work which was displayed.
