While in Albany, I stayed with a friend who recently bought her first house. And so I gave her a gift for her new home — a mandala/talisman for peace and prosperity as she embarks on the next stage of her life. The center is crocheted all in one piece, the circle is make of willow and vines layered and twisted together.
I like combining natural materials and fibers. I have everything I need now to start the piece I want to make with the yarn that Andrea spun, dyed, and sent to me from Australia.
But it’s going to take some powerful magic to give me the time I need to work on something that creative.
It’s raining today. She’s sleeping. I still haven’t unpacked from my glorious four nights away from here.
Time. Time. Time. Time alone. To create.
