Now, Mavor embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to full.

Photos Taken by the Author of Pocketful of Posies (Click on Images to Enlarge) The character's faces are painted on wooden beads. I like using driftwood to develop house roofs and furniture. I hand sew every stitch in every single illustration. I contain beads, shells and other situated objects in the fabric relief scenes. I use plant dyed wool felt and multicolored threads to create the pictures. Some characters inside the book have hats made of acorn caps.
