Fair Trade?

Beate Knappe, an artist in Germany, and I have traded small works of art a few times. The small piece above was part of a larger piece that wasn't working for her, so she cut it up into smaller pieces and started hand stitching on each of the small pieces. Because I do not do much hand stitching, I have a sincere appreciation for it in the work of others, and I easily fell in love with this little work of art. Beate's instructions to me were to "surprise her" for the trade, so I made the collage below and sent it off to her.
