Months in the making by Miguel Villalobos, embroidered by Cecile Quiltu

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Miguel Villalobos designed my new veil based on the idea of a smashed windshield.  My friend Mr. Pearl introduced me to his friend Cecile Quiltu to make the actual embroidery. We discussed it back in March and last night…it finally arrived. Of course it is done by hand and took much longer than Cecile had anticipated.
