For some time now, I have been trying to make a rope…
This tapestry was a gift to our family from a friend who was working in Afghanistan last year.
He said, “maybe you could make something out of it, like pillows!”

“we’ll make Rock the Healing cuffs!”
We took them to San Francisco in February!
And it was a sort of rebirth!
With the fringe from that tapestry, I’m now trying to make this rope.
It still needs some work.
