I have been back home from helping out with the twins for 5 days now – and I am so surprised how long it is taking me to recover my energy. It is the sort of tiredness that sleep alone does not mend.
What I seem to need is long hours of mindless nurturing repetitive ‘colouring in’!
Intrigued by Daisy Yellow’s Weaves
I started one of my own – initially it felt too formalised and difficult to keep the weaves going – and of course I found I could not stick to black and white and had to add some colour:
to be more free I then did wavy lines, but did them initially in pencil and used a rubber to create the over and under cross-overs – and as a reaction to the one before – no black in sight:
I like this weave the best. The three weaves were done over 3 evenings in front of the TV, and a little at odd moments in the day.
Now, I have gone past needing to do these weaves as a restorative mindless exercise and feel a teeny bit obsessed with trying out more with different themes – any ideas?!
Then Google Zentangle! Wow! hours of fun spent in the realms of altered consciousness ……
