    This photograph of your full moon & woven night quilt, even the tree trunk it lies on… it’s been haunting me for 2 days now. Beautiful, luminescent, with a calm sense of mystery I just love.

    I am totally thrilled about your WritingCloth, but I must say I am also totally moved by your quilting cloths as well.

    Thank you for sharing both.

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
