First try at the Trinity (the Celtic-Knot appearing tangle) and Balloya (the one with the multiple lines). I enjoyed doing both, and could certainly get better at both with practice. Why did I choose these two? Because they both began with triangles.
But never mind that. Look what just arrived from my kind and unbelievably talented friend AE. She MADE this. Since I can sew but only very badly, this boggles my mind. She sews like a pro, weaves wonderful things, beads exquisite pieces, does punch needle rugs, dyes her own yarns, and I know I'm forgetting other talents. And all of it beautifully.
I love this! Am I lucky or what?
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
