Arts and Crafts

I don't watch t.v. every night, and Extreme Makeover doesn't always make me cry.

The other night, for example, my roommate and I hosted a knitting/crocheting party. I cannot boast of anything spectacular, but check out Indra's (Eli's sister) work (modeled by yours truly).

Indra's work

All three pieces are originals and demonstrate Indra's concern for texture and shape. You can't see it, but the handbag has a flat bottom panel that permits a fullness you don't often see in more 2-dimensional craftwork.

There's another neck piece she made called Road Kill. 'Wish I had a photo to show you. You'd agree that it earns the name as it looks like a bunch of red-stained pelts strung up on an otherwise nice looking scarf.

Yeah Indra!

Y'all should have your own show on QVC. There are millions to be made.

Indra’s work is amazing! i think she should debut her 5th Avenue meets Thunderdome collection before fall. Paris, New York, Milan… these cities will scream for Road Kill.

K, you are always telling me to let things go. Just ask Greg, he knows how hard that is for me. I will give it a try, but not before I blog about it first, of course. Pretty head thingie, by the way.

Trivia note: "Pretty Head Thingie" was a rejected Nine Inch Nails album title.

But, elija1, if your sister can give a rational account of her craft - both the object of its attentions and the nature of what it dispenses - is she not then practicing an art? And would she not be so flattered by such an accolade as to want to lay claim to it?

Indeed, for how could it be otherwise, Davey? Only the most unwise of men would deny that what you are saying is true. And I, for one, am ready to follow your argument wherever it shall lead, just like one of those Thracian hunting dogs that follows its master, not by blows or necessity, but willingly.
