Een paar weken geleden zag ik in het Tilburgs' Textielmuseum het tafelkleed van het project 'Splitzij' - een kunstwerk van Anne Verhoijsen waar ik op deze site eerder al een stukje* over schreef- in levende lijve. Aan het tafelkleed zelf - met bloemen be-borduurd door 'zakenmannen in pakken' - was niet zoveel te zien maar aan de 'broddellappen' die deze mannen maakten om zich in het borduren te bekwamen waren des te meer. 120 bekende Nederlanders waaronder kunsthistoricus Henk van Os, voetballer Ronald de Boer en kunstenaar Merijn Bolink borduurden hun naam in kruissteek op een katoenen lapje.

*) Since Carolyn from the 'Dangerous Chunky' knitting weblog wondered what the previous post on this embroidery project - with a black-and-white picture of men in suits busy embroidering - was about, i'll translate this post for her and other English-reading crafty visitors:

A couple of weeks ago on a museum trip I ran into the one and only tablecloth of the project 'Splitzij' ('Embroidery Floss', in English) - a work of art by Dutch artist Anne Verhoijsen - in the Dutch Textile Museum in Tilburg. The tablecloth itself, embroidered by 'businessmen in suits', wasn't that spectacular to see but the samplers the men had to make to practice the art of embroidery all the more. 120 well-known men - that is, in The Netherlands - among which art historian Henk van Os, soccer player Ronald de Boer and artist Merijn Bolink embroidered their names in cross stitches on a piece of cloth. Isn't that just sweet?
