I learned to sew at an early age and have loved all things textile since... and have the stash to prove it. Pencils and pens and crayons and paint are a messy mix but I'm like a kid in a candy store. Merging the different materials, making something lovely out of them, saying something joyful, or just having fun. . . and, yes, once in a while, a rant.
It's okay . . . to color outside the lines.
