My journey into the world of weaving

Two years!


Two years ago I had my first weaving lesson! (February 6) I can’t believe it.

Weaving has added so much to my life. In addition to giving me a sense of accomplishment and creativity, it really has centered me more. My recent spinning lesson proves that. In the old days, I probably would have flung the spinning wheel away from me in total frustration after an hour! But the new centered me just persevered and realized that glimmer of a connection at hour 4! I wish this would carry over into all parts of my life but it probably has more than I know.

Thank you, Margaret Russell, for being such an excellent teacher and mentor and friend. And thank you to all my weaving friends in the virtual world for your support and comments and mentoring. May you continue visiting and enjoying my work as I do yours!

  1. Happy anniversary!!! 😉

  2. Congratulations!
    Aren’t we lucky to have found such a wonderful obsession – each new skill learnt rewarding, and endless more to explore. It’s deeply satisfying to hold cloth created from your mind and your hands.
    Best wishes for many more years of perseverance and accomplishment!

  3. This week I picked up a new word blogaversary/blogiversary. Yours could be called your Weavaversary/Weaviversary, yes?

    Anyway, I hope this only the second of many, many, MANY more happy Weavaversaries!

  4. PS. Rose got sick of my not being able to get to Blenheim, so she’s coming to Nelson on Monday. Yay! Finally!!

  5. Gosh Susan, you’ve really been productive in those two years. I know you’ve inspired me with some of your weaving. And just think, it only gets better.

  6. Thank you for sharing this. A wonderful post.

  7. Thank you, Meg, Shannon, Leigh, and Peg! You in particular have been with me on this journey. And welcome, Judy! I’ve added your blog to my reader!

  8. Happy Anniversary!

    Two years, I cannot believe it. Seems just the other day you stood in my little teaching room and started to revel in all that a loom beholds. Look what you have done in these two years. Amazing!
