Again I am surrounded by a group of women who are creative and giving of their talents. The garden is a place of refuge as well as production--the New England work ethic has kept most of the gardens filled with fruits and vegetables with a nod to the Norton sisters, members of the Folly Cove Designers, who grew herbs and many medicinal plants for their mail order business. There are days when I feel their presence here in this special place. My small work room is piled high with supplies for future projects! -- dried plant materials, containers, papers, books, watercolors, fabrics and, of course, yarn.
As a self-employed designer I have the freedom to take on a wide range of projects. Another avenue that has opened to me is designing book covers, many for cookbooks but a growing number for authors sharing their thoughts in the new world of self-publishing. I fear I will run out of time before I run out of projects!
