Butterfly Dreams

This mostly silk cloth I am working on is so light that these lavender stalks
easily supported its weight, while also enfolding it in their lovely scent. And then a butterfly appeared and settled on the cloth... I took it along with me to the Cowichan River - holding my tree in mind as I walked in the forest there. But maybe it is really a butterfly in its early stages and those two green limbs will one day be wings allowing the tree to lift off on the wind... I'm calling this one Butterfly Dreams.
And here is a gift I received yesterday - Indigo plants to dye with!! Lots of fun ahead for me.
