I have long loved "verdigris".......so when I saw this photo collage, I knew I wanted to put it into my weaving.
This is the first time I have tried a gradation warp sectionally. It was a lot of winding spools, and rewinding, and rewinding.
It worked, and I think that I will be better at it next time, now that I've done it.
Of course, L and I pretty much rock at sectional warping, we've done it so many, many times.
The good, good news is that last Monday, something clicked in my head, and since then, my headaches are much, much better.
After 3-4 weeks of misery since that massage on my neck, the relief is more than I can describe.
Do I have a headache? Oh yeah, but it is nothing, truly, it is DOABLE. It is the daily headache that I have all the time, and most often don't even think about.
I can weave, sew, bake, walk, do whatever I want. It doesn't hold me hostage on the couch, wondering how long I can withstand it.
It's ok. Unbelievable, but ok.
This color moves me so. I am only sorry that I put just 20 yards on. I should have put more.
This is the most beautiful sight, to me. Threads aligned and shimmering in the light, ready to be woven, waiting for my imagination to transform them.
It's a day to day thing. It all hurts, but they all make up the fabric of this life of mine.
With the feeling of bricks on my face GONE, I have been a whirlwind this weekend. I feel like a kid let out of school, a prisoner on parole.
My list of to do stuff didn't stand a chance. I flew around this old house, crossing them off one by one, cleaning, organizing, moving stuff, making it mine again.
I woke up this morning, and thought, "thank you, thank you," the feeling of day to day normalcy washed over me. Life without that crushing headache, without the fear that something else is happening inside your head, something that you can't even see, ah......it's priceless I tell you, priceless.
