"too pretty for pens"

I purchased this to carry my pens but when it arrived it was just too beautiful to be tucked away in my bag so I put it up on my wall. The craftmanship is spectacular and I just love looking at it.

"I was a little nervous when I offered this to my brother and sister-in-law"

as a hanging for the nursery a few months before their first child was born. But my sister-in-law is a big traveler and it was fine for a boys or girls room, so I offered it. She was delighted and her mom designed the babys room around it (llamas on the curtains!). They used it for both kids. One would regularly insist on being held up to look at it carefully after a diaper change. I always try to be a cool auntie. This wall hanging was my first success.

"Beautiful Stocking"

Purchased this stocking for my daughter, a children s librarian and was so excited to see the details sewn into the stocking. People and creatures of the jungle cover this wonderfully colored stocking. Excellent craftsmanship went into this creation.
