“Custom Build”


Description from S KatollakaSue: One October, the Wise Woman decided it was time for a new home, so she assembled materials, tools and supplies, but most importantly, her hands. Skilled after years of practice, almost to the point of magic (?), she quickly built a strong stone house with locks to assure privacy. The spiders and their webs and the bats joined the party very quickly. Disclaimer - tools were chosen for their beauty rather than appropriateness.
