Last fall the creative folks at Hand Maiden and Fleece Artist put out a call for pattern submissions based on the theme of Nova Scotia colours and culture. The interest was strong from pattern designers with fond memories and inspirations drawn from the Nova Scotia land, culture, and its people. Come and visit with us as we hear the story behind the stories from Jana at Hand Maiden: https://youtu.be/8dNiweWRRIw.
Maud Lewis‘s delightful tulips that adorned many of her paintings and her famous tiny house are the inspiration for this lacy cowl.
