When I taught in Canada in 2010, Pam took two workshops with me and I stayed with her and her family. Yesterday, she brought with her (all the way from Montreal) the quilt she had made for Orah as a result of one of my classes, and at lunch, she brought it out to show me.
Twelve by the Dozen, I promised not to post it till she had done so.
We walked and walked and walked and walked all over Manhattan and loved the store windows on 5th Avenue. Louis Vuitton was the winner with this one. don'tcha just love it? Everybody was taking pictures and she looked so real that we thought it was one of those people who stand still for a living. But she didn't blink so we figured out she had to have been a mannequin. You can't believe how real she looked.
They had decorated the exterior of the building in stick-on polka dots to draw attention to this event. Can you see the hordes of camera-toting people out front? I took this from across the street. Great marketing!

Tired but happy, as always when I have spent a day in the city. Tomorrow, Brooklyn! NY three times in less than a week. I think I need a half-price metro card for the subway.
