my grandfather was a famous german novelist who wrote many wonderful stories, among them "The Enigma of Caspar Hauser". "Der Fall Maurizius" and many more. This link goes to a German Website dedicated to him.
I was most fortunate to meet Amy & Carly from Umbrella Prints and was asked to make up several of their designs in metal! They turned out beautifully. This is such a privilege to work with such talented women. I strongly recommend that you check out their blog and see their beautiful fabrics!
