Hi risa!
I love Elena's embroidery! Those colors are so perfect! And Florencio's gourds are so beautiful, the detail in his carvings and drawings are amazing!


wow, those gourds are awesome.


shari - i too love art i have a connection with-i love how it can bring you back to a special moment or remind you of a special person. ther embroidery i showed is a sample of a pattern elena has used in the past on bottom of skirts...actually, i saw one skirt she did that had a similar pattern on the whole thing! she has been embroidering for years and has amazing patience. truly inspiring.

grache - i´m glad you love it! i do too. :)
