As colorful as Mexico. I like Mantis, if they are made of wood ;-) And this is especially nice.

Pardon me while I mine the depths of your very beautiful blog. I followed a link from my local quilt shop, which was advertising the arrival of your lovely new fabric. Fabulous content. Thank you.

Hermoso. Conoci estas pequeñas esculpturas armables/desarmables, tipicas de Mexico, aqui en Bolivia (santa cruz de la sierra, donde vivo), por una tienda de artesanias de tu pais. Nunca fui, pero se que Mexico es una fiesta de colores muy inspiradores. Y esta mantis esta liiinda :)

My sister came home from San Miguel with several pieces that look just like that. I wonder if it's the same artist or just a local style. They make me happy, too.
