The lapsed loom

Oh dear, another long lapse...

Life events have taken over of late, mainly the two jobs I now do to make ends meet, and general life stuff which takes most of what I've got to give. Still working on attaining that elusive work-life balance so there is room for the creative juices to flow. I am quite accepting that I might have to be patient until things are looking a bit more healthy financially before I can work away more regularly at the loom.

For the time being, I have more or less sacrificed the weaving to make other things happen. Also, I struggle with the thought of sitting alone in a room. I would rather be interacting with other people in a creative space, rather than in isolation.

My friend Robin goes to a regular art group which meets for an art week once a year. I visited him yesterday and felt for the first time in a while like creating. It didn't feel like it would take much to sit there with my loom and play.

So somewhere in the back of my head, these thoughts are simmering away and working themselves out. More later. Thanks for your messages on this site.

PS I have started building the archway in the garden
