Last week I mentioned the absurdity of a health challenged person embarking on time consuming physical tasks such as gathering natural malerials, making paper, prepping and studying new branches of the art tree, and it surprised me that nobody mentioned "productive procrastination" aka Resistance. (dah-dah-DAAAAA) Because really, it's exactly what I'm doing. After all I … Continue reading Constant focus change
Not that I'm planning or hoping to, but these many weeks of disability lately has made me question, as usual, whether I'm ever going to utilize my garden, my studio, or even survive for another 30 years. Chronic pain does a number on your thinking, not just your outlook but the simple ability to form … Continue reading If I were to move
How has summer been treating you so far? Here in DK, children will be starting school again soon, in other countries I know August is the big holiday month. Do you have plans or did they already happen? Still very few days above 20° here, 15-18 and rain is mostly the norm. And I'm not … Continue reading August!
Thanks to those of you writing to wish me well - I'm much better now but have been taking it slow and easy for a while, and I suspect I'm going to need my second chiro visit on the 15th to unstuck my neck once more, but hope to manage until then. The cat luckily … Continue reading July WIP Wednesday
I've had this crazy, disturbing energy in my body all of last week and it won't let go. I've tried working through it, expressing it, soothing it, ignoring it. At least my headaches are going, so I believe it's hammock time if the weather permits. What are you reading at the moment? Save Save Save … Continue reading Library stack
"Replace fear of the unknown with curiosity." -Danny Gokey (?) Another month has unfolded and about to run out, with hopes of the next one being gentler for sitting tasks and skinny cold fingers. I'm being flooded with opportunities to practice what I spoke of recently, oiling the door between the brain studio and the … Continue reading April collage
Some reading, some progress on my cardigan after yet another knitting break. Unfortunately I went through these books much too fast and now I'm without fiction again. I've finally begun working on the window casings in the stoodio, after much thinking, dragging of feet, and initial experimenting, but the body says it would like to … Continue reading WIP Wednesday
Another draft was waiting for photos to be posted but it seems that will be for next week instead. So I'm going to have to think of something else to tell you. I'm waiting for a courier and I can't hear the van from the loom room or the loft, so I can either knit … Continue reading W51Y15
All building has been suspended while waiting for weather and help installing the skylights, as well as resting my back after multiple treatments to help with the nerve pain in my leg. (what looks like windows in my previous photos are just semitransparent roof plates) Roof plates have to be removed and cut, so it … Continue reading Studio project 4
I'd almost forgotten, that it's a thing that I do. In all the weaving frenzy, wips have been sitting hidden and alone in various baskets, no longer interesting. Until I realised, that if we do get summer (which is not a given in years when I have new shorts and skirts) I can't bring my … Continue reading What knitting?
