The lovely lady named Claudia is another talented stitcher I met through Flickr. She has a blog, which is notable for having the loveliest, hand-stitched banner I've ever seen. Her Etsy store is on a break right now, but if you were lucky you might have snatched up hand-stitched beautiful-ness like this, or this, or this.
I was lucky enough to do an exchange with her, and in person, her work is just as gorgeous as it is online. But what I love most about Claudia is the sensitivity and kindness that comes through on her blog and in her work. I love that she's a Hispanic crafter, and very proud of her language and her culture. She's a loving, humorous, wonderful person I'm so glad to have met.
My conversation with Claudia includes just a few of the things that make her special: love, language, and embroidery. Thanks Claudia for filling the internet with love and life! :)
