    "They Call the Wind Mariah"

    With March coming in like a Lion, I knew it was time to make this piece. I modeled it after a wood cut title "west Wind". My husband keeps referring to it as SWMBO. (she who must be obeyed). The fabric is hand dyed and the darker material is organza. This one is 25"x 36". I keep threatening to hang it in his office.

    It is beautiful. You have a wonderful piece there. Are you and your husband fans of "Rumpole of the Bailey"?

    No. But the SHMBO is also used often on the BBQ and Foodie sites that my husband frequents. Men everywhere have the same lament.

    Very creative. Pretty windy here in Virginia as well.

    WOW MK ... has Mariah ever evolved!!! Incredible!
    Just so long as your DH remembers SWMBO and falls in line accordingly!!!!!!
    hhmmmmmm? Maybe you should just do the letters on a quilt/hanging of it's own ...... why be subtle?

    Oh gosh, he's going to HATE me!
