A friend/mentor/mother figure/so many things passed away last year. I haven't had a lot of time to process it; this last year has been full of work, 2 moves, and having a baby. More and more lately, I've felt a pull to create something for her- for Kathy. She was an artist and her medium was tie dye/silk embroidery. Exquisite things really. I chose a batik fabric that reminded me of her, the color orange (her favorite), and a lotus blossom (symbolic of beauty and rebirth).
