It's not all about mittens though, oh no. We made bunnies too! Big, cuddly, crochet bunnies. Are they cute? Yes! But take a closer look. They're also a little bit sinister...
I think that the key to unlocking the meaning in this piece is contained within the title: 'She's Mine!' Go figure, really! Rabbits aren't always as cute and innocent as they seem...especially when there's adultery involved, and crochet hooks become weapons! Notice our very own Penny Tea is hanging out in the background. How can she be involved, hmmm? Whatever is going on, I think we can all agree: sometimes, crochet ain't so cute.
At this point, we'd like to say a huge mega thank you to everyone involved in the show! All of the artists did an amazing job. They're all so talented! It was brilliant to be able to have our stuff sitting next to such beautiful things. Especially as many of them were created by our dear friends. Awww! A big extra shout out is awarded to UAW CAT, erstwhile organiser and curator of the exhibition (and not to mention a most excellent friend). What a star! It is an awesome achievement, and I know that all of the artists were thrilled to be asked to take part. Joy! We'll post some pics and links to everyone elses stuff in a later post :)
We got reviewed by artinliverpool.com, and they said some lovely things about all of us. We got a special mention and two photos. Apparently "Penelope Teapot’s knitted things are clever and cute". Result! So thanks to those chaps for being so kind to us. Go look and see what they said!
Over and out xxx
