Fireflies are one of life's wonders. I still am delighted and amazed by their winking lights on a summer evening. Somehow, I want the Queen's Bedoin Tent to invoke the same response. The whole concept was inspired in large part by the blue canvas tent painted by Rae, a creation which changed and grew on every trip, the dragon and the butterfly, outlined in black permanent marker. Although originally I planned only to hang curtains, I'm now bidding on lengths of vivid sari material and considering imprinting the basic white structure with celtic designs in permanent fabric paint and glitter.
