although I have been buying and gathering supplies for the Mark Making course I will begin in a few weeks time. Fortunately I have many of the items on the supply list. We are to choose one colour to work with and the yarns, ribbons, threads and beads, etc. that I've gathered are all in shades of green. The arbutus tree is my favourite tree and I once wrote an ode to it - I love the contrast of the peeling red bark and green wood beneath, and the sensuality of it's shape.
