Thanks, Lauren. And you're right, a lot of time and energy went into this piece. She took between two to three months to complete!

You captured a wild look very nicely - all the time you put into it shows!

Thank you for your positive feedback! It did take a long time - the free motion embroidery (or free-hand machine stitching) on the skirt took about two months to produce.

Thank you so much Rita. She was inspired by a book with the same name by author Terri Windling. I had the opportunity to show her to Terri last spring at the Joseph Campbell conference, Mythic Journeys in Atlanta, GA, which was a wonderful experience!
