What could be more perfect than Calif spelled out in Monarch Butterflies! Jo’s Monarch Butterflies comes to us all the way from Australia. This is the Postcard that has traveled the greatest distance to reach us. Thank you, Jo.

Monarch Butterflies always remind me of California. This card is hooked on Hessian with hand dyed 100% wool carpet yarn from New Zealand “a left-over” recycled from a carpet company and sari silk off-cuts.
