Loving a new diversion!

I’ve taken a bit of a break from felting. Not sure why, but until I feel the still small inner voice say to me “It’s time, Anna”, I’ve been allowing myself the luxury of taking up something old and something new.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’ll find progress pictures of some free form crochet motifs destined to be a neckpiece for my bestie. You would also have seen some pictures of my jump into circle weaving. (Find me on Facebook under Anna Walker in Topeka, KS and on Twitter and Instagram as @feltit.)

My friend Linda was happy to see me weaving the other day, and quite frankly, I didn’t realize just how much I would enjoy weaving, though my efforts are a far cry from Linda and her master weaving. I mean, she has a weaving studio in her home with several looms warped on any given day!

But there is something meditative about adding layer after layer of threads, yarns, fiber, and fabrics, that is pleasing, soothing, and grounding.

Another friend, Laura, is in the midst of a meditation ‘retreat’ of unknown duration. I’m beginning to understand the allure of ‘retreat’ in this crazy, busy, hate filled and anxious world in which we live.

And I’m grateful for the inspiration to play with these circle weaves.
