    1. Thanks so much Marie! Surface design work on textiles is one of my favorite things to do....and it is even better when I use that fabric in a project.

    1. Thank you Joyce! I don't crochet or knot.....bought the green sweater at Dress Barn a couple years ago. It looks even better when I wear a contrasting colored shirt under it, then you can really see the pattern show up.
      Happy Autumn,
