While I am not averse to having company, and I love having an apprentice, I must say that today was a fantastic day at the studio.
Just me and the cats. I didn't even turn the radio on. The only noise was the whoosh of the shuttle.
It was lovely.
Sometimes a day like this is just what I need to regroup.
I have always been fond of alone time, even as a child. My mother would often come into my room, to see if I was alive.
I think it is a gift, to like being alone sometimes, and to be good at amusing oneself. It has stood me in good stead.
Where did that phrase come from???
I did a little of this, and a little of that. No pressure.
I cut some fabric. Actually I cut a lot of fabric.
I did a little bird watching.
Which brought a question to mind. Do you feed the birds year round? If so, why, or why not?
Looks like he's waiting for the answer, doesn't he??
I wound some yarn, for no particular reason than it seemed like a good idea.
I wove a couple of Walkin' on Sunshine rugs, 30"x60".
And I appreciated. I appreciated everything about the day.
The studio, a choice of looms to weave on, lots of fabric to pick from, contented cats, spring, a whole day to myself to just be quiet and reflective, Bubbalee making it safely across the road, living in a free country. Being safe. Being healthy. So much to be thankful for. The list is long.
And that's all the philosophy for tonight, folks! Hope your weekend was lovely.
Are you ready for Monday?
I love Mondays.
