I hope you haven’t forgotten about this sweet little loom at our Texas hill country home. It is refreshing to be able to start right back up and weave another placemat. This is a breeze, even with two double-bobbin shuttles. Color and weave brings plenty of design play. Over the weekend I was able to squeeze in enough weaving time to finish one more placemat.
There is no hurry or urgency with this project. Other events, transitions, and necessities have taken precedence the last few months. It’s nice to have a ready loom that doesn’t hold a deadline. Simple two-treadle plain weave during a transitional season is a welcome respite.
Faith is trust. It’s the simple framework we long for when life gets complicated. Trusting the Lord is like knowing what to expect when you throw the shuttles, yet still being pleasantly surprised as you see the fabric form in front of you. His grace removes the hurry and the worry. We find his grace through faith. And isn’t that exactly the respite we need?
May you have a break from hurry and worry.

That was just the message I needed to hear today!
Hi Lynette, I write about things I need to hear. So you and I have this in common. The Lord is so good to meet us where we are.
There is beauty in the simple to do and the complex. In the cottage pudding and the gingerbread construction. In the purity of the weave in the dish towel and in the detail of color and stitch in the lizard tapestry. The building of a submarine and the weeding of a bean patch.
I think being able to see the beauty in our daily work is a gift from God. Of course, the occasional WOW!!! is welcome.
Hi Nannette, Thanks for the reminder to see beauty in the simple to the complex. I agree, it’s a gift from God to see it.
All the best,
Love this – beautiful weaving and beautiful words!
Hi Kelly, I’m glad you found it meaningful!
