There's just something about texture, whether in nature or man made, that makes me completely giddy. It's everywhere, and my brain can barely keep up with the endless stream of inspiration. How can I translate that woven rush basket into a knit fabric via the medium of sticks and string? Oh! That leaf could so easily be a lace design. Tile roofs have such a wonderful garter ridge order to them, hmmm. So begins the magic of another design.
