A Gift for Mara

Shrug-using autumnal colors

So nice outside-had to take photo

And there is Mara, this hard working gal at Kirby Lane. Always a smile and always serving her customers with  such commitment. I wanted to do something for her to say "thank you" for making this place a great Austin attraction.

I tapered the cuffs and added  a button to each side.
