Three Years

In nature, textiles, and dreams. That may sound hokey, but I actually do have dreams about color combinations!

9. Any funny stories, words of wisdom, something else to share about you or your business?
Words of wisdom: There's no such things as too much yarn, only not enough time. Funny story: I once spilled a container of black dye solution, and it got all over my blonde hair. Not a look I intended to go for.
