Thank you, Alka, for your enthusiastic comment. How funny that you, from Gujarat, should admire work that I confess was heavily based on my impressions of Kashmiri shawls and Gujarati mirror work! And here I am, I have never even been to India! *laughs* Now I feel like a fake! Ha ha, but it is okay because you liked it, that means all is well! ;)
Dear Alka Acharaya,
I joined a few days ago, so I am a newbie too. I have been to Gujarat a few years ago, I was in Bhavnagar to visit Palitana. My dream is to come back and visit the Textile Museum in Ahmedabad again and also visit the Kuchch, I read that here there are many textile crafts and would like to go one day or another.
Welcome here, I hope that we can be 'friends'.
