a weaver

My response to May's TIF.
Terse and self assured it has taken me years of agonizing, questioning, justifying and being apologetic about what i do.
Times when i dreaded filling forms with the deadly occupation question. i studied literature and became an EFL teacher, but that was not what i was, that was a small part of the cake.
Always felt and said that i am at my very best when weaving. i can think, create and transform reality into something else either functional or artistic.

i am a weaver who dyes.
i am a weaver who experiments in surface design
i am a weaver who has recently learned to embroider
i am a weaver who is teaching herself to machine knit
i am a weaver who likes to work with animations
am a weaver who creates fractals
i am a weaver who is married
i am a weaver who loves to cook
i am a weaver who gardens
i am a weaver who is a crazy japanophile
i am a weaver.

  1. Being a weaver is complicated! I checked on the challenge blog and was a bit tempted, but decided I didn't have the time. Thanks for sharing!

  2. wow. i think i need to faint. i would say that a weaver is definitely what you are,and that being said, go over to girl, and share some woven shibori with her.....
