Commissions for a Friend

Around Christmas time I made two clipped fiber art quilts for a friend. She gave them to her husband and son for Christmas. They both measured 9" x 12" and are made from clipped yarn with embroidered detail. They are titled "Mt. Rainier" and "Coast of Washington." It was hard to sell them to her, one--because she was my friend and, two--I wanted to keep them. Oh, well, my first commissions, so I sold them. Both took forever to make because I don't like the color green (only used it for lettering here to match the pictures) nor did I like the subject matter. I'm game for other commissions, however. Someone wants me to do a bi-plane! Not too sure about that one....
