How this came to be

Both Ken and Lee are artistic.  She has been learning how to crochet and a long piece had gotten out of control and become something like a giant anaconda.  AHA, stuff the anaconda with pillows but to clean it, have buttons on the belly.  Soon wooden belly button were purchased. There were large beads and some leather string was used.  One morning they were gathered together to make a circle. Ken liked that and got some more beads and viola "Comfort" was born. 

Actually this was a moment of divine inspiration. There was no plan, no goal , just a playful assembly of the materials on hand.
