Crayons and Lego

Patchwork stole with Kalamkari buta
Spoken for
Kalamkari flowers drawn like a child drew it with her wooden pen. Learning imperfection.

The patches of squares, like blocks of Lego placed on top of each other. Learning precision.

This comes together with that. That comes together with this. Everything possible.

A play date today with my inner child. I revel in my mischievous streak.
