I have been loving the quiet meditative aspect of weaving.
Learning as I go ...thinking up new ideas as I weave along with my basket of yarn and twines beside me. Switching up colours and thinking of patterns.
My yearning to weave had me create my own little loom ... I simply went into my studio, chose a small canvas frame - turned it over - hubby took it to his workshop and hammered in the nails and ta da ... a loom!
The perfect size to create little wall hangings.
Because I live with chronic pain, I always have to be conscious of neck, back and arm positioning no matter what I am doing ... be it painting, knitting, weaving ... even reading a book!
Pacing and Passion has always been a tricky balance for me ... I so love creating & there were years where it was impossible to do any handcrafts that it almost felt like "catch up" when I was able to begin again.
Taking this into account, Hubby and I sat and created a design for an "actual loom" and he is taking that to his work shop. One I can hold and then have adjustments made if needed :-)
He has some lovely black walnut in mind ♥
We all have our own life to pursue,
our own kind of dream
to be weaving,
and we all have the power
to make wishes come true,
as long as we keep
