This was a good week for me. I hope it was for you too.
I joined a bible study group that is focusing on prayer journal-ling. I have attempted to journal before, but it has only lasted a day or 2. So far I have been able to keep up with it.
Since I needed to carry my bible, a journal, and pens, I made me a tote to carry all of it in.
I also have found a new ‘theme’ song for myself. To help me with my walk. It is “No Longer a Slave/ I am Child of God” by Chris Tomlin. Just a side note, Chris Tomlin is from a small town near where I live.
Moving on, I did some work on weaving this past week also. I should have done more, but the ‘I don’t feel up to it’ crept in. As I posted in the past, I will be weaving some kitchen towels. Here is how it starts. Warping the yarn:
This is how you measure out your yarn. You first figure out how many yarns you need to make the width, then you are able to measure out the length. I know that I need 270 yarns for the width, then I just measured out the length. I will be making several towels, so I measured out 6 yards. I also will be doing 2 stripes in a different color. So I subtracted what I need for those from the 270.
Here all the yarn is placed on the loom waiting to be threaded. This is called the start of ‘dressing the loom’.
I have threaded the reed. This separates the yarn. Next week it will be threaded through the heddles. There are several steps in setting up a project on a loom. They may take some time, but put on some good music and go with the flow. This can be very therapeutic.
That is all for this week.
May you have a Spirit Led week.
