field notes from the woolworks
... working at making and other joyful life strategies
Heidi Wulfraat • woolworker • maker • dreamer
What if today was your graduation day?
All of your past days have been the elementary school, middle school, university of your life.
Today's the day that you gather all the bits that have come easily and everything for which you've struggled. Roll them up, give yourself a toast, and prepare to launch.
You've earned this progression. From self doubt to verification.
You were meant to work and to wait - for today.
And now you know that you can try anything.
It's a different sort of summer for me. I'm "between shops" for a few months but still finding loads to do with my time. Walks with the dogs are high on the priority list, my project planner is getting a workout, and long-suffering WIPs are being revisited. Mostly though, I've been dreaming about a fresh new shop. About creating something new.
Its a good thing. To feel as though you're still up for an adventure. To become reacquainted with the work that most excites you. Your perfect fit.
... our physical retail shop, London-Wul fibre arts has closed for the summer as we prepare to launch a whole new fibre art experience. Our online shop is open as always.
Everyday I try to find a little something that makes life interesting. A good book, a wagging dog, a cool breeze, tea with a friend.
Here are my field notes about making, discovering, and enjoying a simple, slow, handmade life.
Thanks so much for visiting. I appreciate your spending time with me.
