metromod travel exhibit

This is my entry for the raveling show. It's called There Was a Crooked Man. As I was piecing my strips of greens and oranges, I saw a crooked house appearing which reminded me of the childhood verse : "There was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile; He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse and they all lived together in a little crooked house." After doing some basic hand-quilting, I added some heavier embroidery floss to emphasize the house's form.... and added some quilted steps (crooked of course) to get to the house.
