Coral Reef





While on vacation I saw the usual sites in Washington.  The first week I spent viewing the monuments and museums.  I took the train into town and looked through the exhibits at a leisurely pace. One of the displays was in the ocean exhibit in the Museum of Natural History.  They had created an example of a coral reef all done in crochet.  The different fibers in the reef were amazing and realistic.  I met several ladies who were contributors to this display. My pictures don’t do it justice. Some of the artists were from the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery.

The kids went to that museum the last time they went---but of course, my son didn't notice anything crocheted!
