See, the thing about weaving is that it’s a bit of a commitment. You spend many, many hours setting up a project. So, when said project seems to be taking a REALLY long time to finish, you are left with 2 daunting options:
A. You can take a big breath and keep weaving. OR,
B. You can take a big breath, go out with your friends, completely ignore your loom, (in my case, get bronchitis for a week), and eventually, sit your hiney down and keep weaving.
In very rare occasions, you cut off the project (*gasp!*) and carry on. But, in 90% of the instances, you change your approach, change your colors, change your pattern and make something of it!
I mention all of this because the current project has taken up residence on my loom for much longer than anticipated and I’m ready to be done! Every had those projects? Turns out, I like where the fabric is going and it will be transformed into wonderful handbags when it’s finished! But, in the meantime, I’ll be over here. Weaving. And then more weaving. And… then… a little more weaving… it’s good thing I like it… most days…
The goal is to proudly present you with the finished fabric sooner, rather than later. So, if you have little weaving elves at your house, could you send them over?
It’s sort of turning into a Nemo moment, isn’t it? “Just keep weaving, just keep weaving…”
I promise you won’t come back next week and find a blog about mountain climbing! It’s not that bad. And I’m afraid of heights. So, I’ll still be chatting about weaving. Lots of beautiful weaving! (Let’s move those scissors farther out of the way, just in case.)
So, here’s to a fabulously productive week! May the weaving gods be with us all! I’ll be in a better place next time… promise! Talk to you soon…
Yep, felt that way many times!
Thank you, darling! It’s good to hear you aren’t the only one! chris
gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!
Thank you so much! chris
I totally understand how you feel! I just don’t like to weave the same thing for too long, it makes me bored. Even though I love to weave, sometimes if it’s the same pattern, it gets hard to continue while my head is buzzing with new ideas. The solution for that would be another loom, but I hardly have the space for my one little friend. 🙂
I will be sending good weaving vibes your way, hopefully that will help a little. 🙂
Hey Sonja! Thanks for the sympathy! I like your idea of more looms! But, I’m in the same boat as you! I caught your good weaving vibes and they have totally helped – thank you so much! chris
