Creating the White Lotus Stole

From trial swatches to finished project

While my design process has become more streamlined with practice, the order in which a design goes from concept to completion is seldom a straight-line course. There is ebb and flow, and gradual refinement toward an inner vision -- many steps (sometimes backwards), time, patience -- in plain words, work.

I welcome your comments and suggestions. Don't hesitate to let me know how I am doing and how I can serve you even better. Best regards,
