    We told you last year about Deborah Justice and Jenny Sioux Hopkins and their Nelson County LoveChild shirts. The hot weather got both of them in the mood to crank out the new ones for 2008. “We have people ask us about them all of the time,” says Deborah. The pair came up with the LoveChild concept last year, which has been in high demand ever since.

    In a backyard just off Route 6, they began working on the shirts this past week. Each of them is dyed by hand and prepared for the Love Child design.

    The process is very slow as each shirt is dipped into several different pans of dye.
