Weave, Cut, Knot, Trim, Wash, Dry

Oops, no picture of me weaving, but you get the idea. Taking up the scissors is always so exciting!

Yes, so very exciting! And a little scarey too.

And then the first look...

The lighting in my place doesn't always cooperate with my schedule.

ah, the knotting is done, but it's a little late to run the washer, so I will wait until tomorrow to do the last part.

I promised myself I would finish this before the end of the year. It feels good to keep at least one promise.

A Personal Weaving Retreat

On Christmas morning I will begin weaving a Blessing Blanket

With all of the free flowing joy and celebration happening, I decided to use the energy to weave at this time. I have never spent Christmas in a personal weaving retreat, but it will surely be a joyous celebration. Take a moment to send a prayer if you think of it. Reports along the way to follow.

I always say the power of weaving is that there is no mistake I cannot fix---if I take the time. I certainly have had the opportunity to prove this several times over today. I don't remember the last time I made multiple threading errors, but I happily re-threaded (twice).

Have days of joy, peace and balance!

in whatever you do....

Talk About Weaving Spirit

So I was playing around with my favorite digital image--the self portrait I took when I first got my digital camera ten years ago. The image of me is a reflection off the glass of a framed picture. When I mirror-imaged the image, I was amazed to see a phantom carpet appear. Is that Weaving Spirit or what?

I knew if I didn't post something (anything) today I probably never would. I know there can be a general ebb and flow in the life of a blogger, but I never wanted to believe it would happen to me. My intention is to continue blogging, but I am in a quandary. It seems the things I don't want to blog about are taking up more of my time.

Let's hope this breaks the ice, and I can start posting again. There are many exciting things in the offing, and 2012 looks like a year of teaching, travel and creativity.
