I was awestruck and totally speakless (THis does not happen very often- just ask my husband and kids!!!!) when I opened the envelope that arrived from Bangalore India, yesterday!! Maya, your workwomanship is amazing!!!! I can't get over the fact that you crocheted the lace insert piece yourself!! It is so lacy and delicate! you must have used a lace makers crochet hook. My grandmother used to make lace with a crochet hook and I truely regret not getting her to teach me!!!
The back is lined with aonderful midnight blue silk and she stitched the title and name and her name all in fabulous tiny stem stitch.
Thank you so very much for giving me such a beautiful piece of fiber art that speaks so beautifully of your glorious country and culture. I have always spent lots of time studying pictures of India whenever I can find them, like those in National Geographic. I would love to think that perhaps some day I might be lucky enough to visit your wonderful part of the world!!!!
Thank you! Thank You! Thank you again!!!!
