My latest obsession is wood. But since I made my first quilt ladder with my dad some months ago, I have accumulated in a corner of our porch, left over and stripped down Christmas trees from some understandingly artistic family members, mulberry branches from Courtland, and assorted branches found around our yard and neighborhood. This went undetected by Joe until last week (!), and then from the look in his eyes I could tell that perhaps I had crossed a line again. I think it may have been the Christmas trees.
Well, Dad, I guess it's time I drove down to see ya and make another ladder with my stash. I've been thinking about it so much and I have some beautiful organic ladders designed in my head. - Ruth
