The Amazon basin was the inspiration for my latest design. This, the second longest river on Earth, has no bridges throughout its entire length. It always appears primative and magnificent and yet, a place out of time.
All hand knitted, mounted on canvas and ready to hang.

Near jewelled crystal waters, riverbanks and ponds, they restlessly patrol. Hunting on the wing in dashing raids they can be seen flitting accross these waters on balmy afternoons in beautiful colours and graceful flight.

With elegant long legs and body and four gossamer wings, the Damselfly appears.....................Out of the Blue

Hand knitted with added beads and tiny damselflies.

Moonlight and Roses
Bring wonderful memories of you,
My heart reposes
In beautiful thoughts so true.
June light discloses
Love's golden dreams sparkling anew,
Moonlight and Roses
Bring memories of you.

Mounted on ready to hang canvas.
