    Vermont is a gorgeous state and I love how you have used your tangle patterns to give us a look at its beauty!

  7. This is so beautiful. I love all the various tangles and the colors chosen with love. I lived in MA before I was married in the 1960’s and we would travel up to Vermont to go antiquing and to the farm stands in the Summer. A beautiful state.

  8. Very lovely! Mountains, hills, fields…
