Field Trips & Friends


Who says field trips end with grade school? I love a good field trip and every so often my quilting group plans an outing for inspiration and just plain fun. In April we all trooped into Sacramento to the Crocker Art Museum to see this:

There was no picture taking inside the exhibit but a nice backdrop was provided outside the gallery and we took full advantage for a group shot. I've written many times about the Nellies but I haven't often posted pictures since most of them are a little camera shy. I have no idea why since each and every one is gorgeous and talented and kind, I could go on and on...
Not all but most of the group. Doesn't it look like we're standing on a French street? Well, almost.
Suzanne is certainly happy to be there!
The exhibit itself was a little disappointing. We were hoping to see Lautrec's famous works but it turned out to be a bait and switch with a few works by Lautrec and a lot of works by lesser know contemporaries. Still we enjoyed the day together and lunch at the museum restaurant was outstanding! Field trips - I love 'em!

Until next time,

    1. We did see some lesser known impressionist painters from that period that I liked a lot so all was not lost and I love a day out with friends.

    Too bad about the trickery at the gallery, but a wonderful outing in spite of it !

    1. Our actual group name is the Needle Nellies and we've been quilting/sewing/having fun together for the past 18 years. We always manage to enjoy our time together no matter what!
