And what better way to show the meaning of those connections than to exchange artwork. The question was, what should I weave?
There were plenty of options. Dogs (I've already painted them), Loons (she has enough), the Adirondacks....and then I remembered the wild daffodils.
This winter stretched out longer than necessary, spring struggled to break through. I remembered a conversation when she announced the blooming of the wild daffodils in the field outside her window.. My idea was planted.
I used quite a bit of handspun, no doubt some of the fleece she has sent me over the years.
And of course I took pictures as I wove, she'd feel incomplete not seeing the process.
....and thanks for your friendship Deb.
Have you made something for your friend lately?
