 This morning I sat down and poured through the latest pages of Taproot. It's filled with so many beautiful and fascinating articles. Get an idea of the wide range right here. What a thrill to have my rope baskets featured in this FOLK issue! I offer instructions for both sewing and dyeing them. And after a basket hiatus over the summer, I'm so excited to return to making more for fall harvesting and early holiday making.

After I fill a couple of baskets with apples, you can bet I'll be trying out this Salted Caramel Apple Pie!!
 There were no shortage of captivating stories, but I was especially excited to read about Blue Man, the indigo dyer.
And how to host girls a empowerment retreat is dog-eared!
