pocket watch,chipped China bowl,and a bird skull complete the setting.The colors used in the quilt are
a nod to an unconventional lifestyle,the teal background with pale pink,sage green and
brown,reflect the mix of organic and man-made bounty. Entirely handmade,hand painted and hand sewn with tiny treasures spanning 30 years-15-year-old leather cords and the 30-year-old machine-embroidered lace.Speciality methods such as leather carving,painting and braiding have been used.
