There is a tree in the woods where I walk that looks like a woman in a bussel skrit. Her trunk is so heavy, rounded and thick as it goes into the earth. She is a grounded tree. And whenever I pass her I always stop and say hello. Sometimes with a gentle touch, and other times by leaning against her.
I was thinking of her and the apple tree in our yard, outside my studio window, when I made this Yoni Tree for a potholder.
I stitched a few Yoni Trees today. I’ll make them into potholders next week and sell them in my Etsy Shop.
I stitched these and two more Yoni Trees on these linen napkins. I was inspired by the small Yoni flower that someone hand-stitched on the napkins before me.
