Thank you for stopping under the willow tree. You'll notice that instead of a dye pot there is a swingset, and two girls who need my hands free to push them on the swings. Look around at what I am sending out into the world, to help make or become beautiful objects in the hands of happy artists. Let me know if you find anything you'd like to take home.
