Enter the Forest of Dreams – a love story

Enter the Forest of Dreams is the bed I made over a 13 year period.  More than a practical piece of furniture, it is a multi-dimensional creation containing a fairy tale and a story of the imagination, fruition and eternity of love.  The bed frame is crafted by my hands and the quilts and bedding are stitched together with the story of my life.  My husband Steve and I each wrote a poem which is incorporated into the fabric of the piece.  The hidden part of the bed contains a symbol of eternal love.

Enter the Forest of Dreams

A woman enters the forest to sleep and dream of her True Love.  The trees gather round to mind her through the night.  A new moon, fireflies and the first primrose of springtime light her way.  Over the span of many years, her dreams and her desire coalesce in the river of dreams.  She and her True Love find one another and together, they discover the secret of Eternal Love deep beneath the forest floor.
