Okay, so maybe it's a little bit rude!

I had make a visual response to "The naked worm of Persian jealousy" for a textiles class, so as you can see there's a worm, coming out of a rather opulent apple. I was using lush fabrics like satin & velvet, with diamante and pearls to evoke the "exotic East" thing. Then the apple shape is a reference to Adam & Eve, who realised they were nekkid after eating the apple from the Tree of Knowledge.

Here's another pic:

The first one always makes me giggle though.

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

Well, this reaffirms that mind is firmly entrenched in the gutter.
I saw the first pic and said...."kiddie safe?Huh"

LOL! I love it. You did a great job and I hope you scored really high.

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.
