"Pointsettias and Pinwheels"
This beautiful black crocheted shawl is just amazing! The crochet work makes it look like elegant lace from Spain! I will use this shawl over my summer and fall dresses to keep me warm and looking elegant. I own a cream shawl made by Maria and have received a number of complements on it. Friends want to know where I got it and I tell them enthusiastically about Maria's work and about Novica. I am so delighted to be the owner of two beautiful shawls made by Maria! Gracias!
