Felt Exhibit

I could really use a little trip. Lately I've felt an overwhelming desire for a real vacation. I'm not talking about a long weekend. Or going to visit family. I need a leave-the-computer-at-work-get-out-of-town-for-long-enough-to-really-mean-it kind of trip. The best part is that I have enough airline/hotel miles to go almost anywhere for virtually nothing right now. Yay! I love me the airline miles.

But I think I'm going to have to put that off for awhile. We're busy enough here at Lorna's Laces (thank goodness) that I don't want to leave. Maybe I'll feel good enough to plan things in a few weeks.

In the meantime, I ran across information about an exhibit at The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in NYC that's opening early next month. Cooper-Hewitt is an arm of the Smithsonian located on the Upper East Side. It's housed in the Andrew Carnegie Mansion.

The exhibit looks pretty interesting. Maybe not as interesting as Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting that I saw at the Museum of Art and Design a couple of years ago, but still. It might be worth looking into a weekend trip. It's right next to the Met and I've only spent about a nanosecond in the Met and could certainly get happily lost there for days.

I might even be able to talk to a couple of shops in the area about doing something with them. Or would that be too much of a busman's holiday? Perhaps I should just wait and take the real trip that I need?

I wish the decision fairy would wave her magic wand and let me know what to do.
