"I fell in love with the dog on this clutch!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The detailed and lovely work Maria did on this clutch made me fall in love with the dog she portrays, and wish I could bring it home. Her skill and imagination in doing the applique are very apparent, and I see from looking at her wall hangings that she is a very talented and extra special artist. I will be purchasing more of her special work. Thank you Maria for creating one of my very favorite things.

As an amateur weaver, I appreciated how this piece told the story of wool fibers, from pasture to yarn to product. Thank you!

"After the Flood"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Not only is this a beautiful piece of artwork it also gives the opportunity to serve as a conversation piece. Telling the story of Noah and the flood is a good one to tell anyone wanting to know more about the Old Testament and Genesis...in the beginning.
