My fiber arts group has an exhibit that travels called Wish You Were Here. There are selected travel photos that we use for inspiration then develop pieces based on these photos. The piece above was inspired by the following travel photo from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium. It also fit with the Pacific Portals theme, so there we are. I know that Joan Griffin is also using this photo as an inspiration for her Pacific Portals piece. I can't wait to see what hers looks like!
On a different topic, which is just fun farm stuff. One of our young hens (hatched in May) left an extra large egg for us. You can see the size of her normal egg at the bottom and the extra large egg at the top (OUCH!).
One end was not quite fully formed and as you can see below was a little wavy and it was oozing egg white. We decided eating the egg was dicey since it was oozing, it could mean bacteria could get inside the egg.
At dinner, the kids and I were telling dad about the egg and took it out to show him, then all of a sudden I said, "I bet it has a double yolk!" I had heard of them, but never seen one. Sure enough, when we cracked the egg, that is what we found! Our lucky dog got a double yolk fried egg for dinner that night.
