I thought I would introduce myself as it’s been a while...
I’m not very comfortable being this side of the camera so quite often if there any people pics on my page, it’s my daughter Georgie.
But this is me, doing my thing...weaving....the only thing missing is a blanket and slippers 😂
(Ha mostly I wear woolly socks and the blanket appears in the evenings 😉 #jokingnotjoking)
I discovered weaving two and a half years ago when I was going through a rough patch and I haven’t really stopped or looked back since.
It’s definitely changed my life! I feel like I now have a purpose, and working with my hands, my love of wool, and the repetitive nature of weaving is very meditative and healing for me.
I find that it keeps me grounded, helps me sort my thoughts, and it just generally makes me happy 💗
I have so many ideas buzzing in my head that I keep a notebook to jot down my ideas, they aren’t just weaving ideas, but sometimes other art forms, and lots of words and sentences, drawings, anything that inspires me really.
If you don’t keep an ideas book I really suggest you start one, it’s so fun to look back on and see how your ideas have evolved...and see things there’s no way you would have remembered otherwise.
Further down the track I would love to share my love of weaving with children and adults who struggle with anxiety and would love to slow things down.
It’s a crazy busy world out there and it’s awesome to see that people are wanting to go back to handcrafts/cooking/art etc pretty much making things from scratch again...it really is the best thing, it sometimes takes longer but you live in the moment so much more, and that’s a really good thing!
So yeah, there’s a little snippet about me...feel free to ask me any questions if there’s something you would like to know!
