"Since dyeing is my favorite pastime, I really enjoyed creating colors for the swarm of butterflies, making each on slightly different variations of blue, green, and rust. I experimented with dip dyeing, casserole, and transitional strips, allowing the colors to run into each other. Since it is a Chinese oriental, I was told that the border was stylized clouds. In order to keep it airy, I did not fill in but maintained the edges using strips from all the motifs. I made this for my granddaughter when she was in high school, but we agreed she would have it when she was grown and had a home of her own. Ali, who not only has her home but a lovely daughter now, has claimed her rug, which hangs in little Lola’s bedroom."
