Inspired by visit to Sonoran desert


"Sonoran Stones" hand dyed thread

A visit to the Sonoran desert in Arizona a few weeks ago inspired a new hand dyed thread batch! "Sonoran Stones" is my attempt to capture the colors that I saw while hiking along the nature trails near Phoenix, Arizona. The thread is listed at

A sampling of stones seen on the desert trails.

Size 80 thread in "Sonoran Stones" colorway.

While in Arizona I visited the Desert Botanical Garden near Phoenix which is amazingly beautiful!
That's me in the Desert Botanical Garden!
