  1. Thank-you for stopping by my blog, and liking my post “My grandfather called it tangling thread”. I am going to look around and see if I can find your book; I think my boys would enjoy the pictures, if the cover art is anything to go by.


  2. Michele– wonderful and magical work! Glad I found your blog… I love the pic of you and your husband (i’m assuming). Looking forward to the inspiration I will find as I discover more about your work.. ~karen
