I’m halfway done tacking my Pink Moon quilt. It is the longest quilt I’ve ever made, almost 100 inches by about 80 inches wide. That’s 270 knots.
I listened to Ecologist Suzanne Simard’s interview on Fresh Air about trees, for part of the time. Trees seemed to be like the right thing to be learning about as I tied each knot.
One of the things Simard talked about how trees are social creatures that collaborate with each other to stay healthy.
Her new book is called Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest. As soon as I mentioned it to Jon, he ordered it for me. He said he’s looking forward to waking up and hearing all about trees.
