This was as close as Amy and I got to Frida Kahlo yesterday. Wonderful Frida sticky notes! Deb gave us each a set of them when we met her for coffee and knitting in the morning. We had a delightful time chatting and knitting. Amy made good progress on the lovely Cat’s Paw Shawl she’s making, Deb did the same with her amazing Flower Basket Shawl, and I knit the heel flap and started to turn the heel on my Panda Cotton sock. (All gift or charity projects! Aren’t we productive?)
Then Deb departed for a Very Important Appointment and Amy and I had lunch and set off for the Walker Art Center to see the exhibit. Very excited! Ready to see Frida! Been waiting for Frida!
Frida was not ready for us. Again.
The first time, we rescheduled because Amy’s Youngest Son had strep throat. This time? Funeral. Big, big funeral. Not anybody we knew. But someone a lot of other people knew, because all the streets and freeway exits near the Walker were blocked off. Through a series of frantic phone calls–Where are you? Oh, you can’t go that way. I’ll try this. Where are you now?–we determined that it was going to be impossible. There was no way to actually get to the Walker. We could see it. We just couldn’t drive to it.
Sigh. Frida has been rescheduled. Again.
Thank you, Deb, for the little touch of Frida! I may have to work some hoodoo on this painter so we can actually get to see her show, and sticky notes will come in handy…
