fascinating studies of color and stitch.

bo betsy is licensed to hand embroider some of sandy mastroni's wonderful copyright protected drawings -- unique, charming and quirky drawings paired with the texture and visual interest of hand embroidery. *haven't experienced sandy's art? it's a shame, really. visit her etsy shop! http://sandymastroni.etsy.com//
