Before we entered the exhibit, we stopped for a group shot. I think two people had gotten there early and were already inside, but this is most of us:
It was amazing to see all that stunning art with friends. Getting a glimpse into the everyday life of the era is pretty fascinating. I know there's a lot of little details I'm missing because I'm too busy mentally deconstructing the clothing of the subjects. I was so caught up in the hat and facial expression of one lady that I totally missed seeing there was a tortie cat under the table until jenthompson pointed it out to me! I think that means I need to spend more time around art.
I managed to finish up my friend's outfit just in the nick of time - I put the last stitch in the hat just minutes before she arrived to get ready! I'm really happy with how it turned out. She was thrilled too, which made me feel great about it.
