Sometimes the busier things get the more I need to nudge myself into the quiet space of handcrafting. I love to make things. It quiets my mind fully, in a way that others find through yoga or meditation. Knitting. Sewing. Doll-making… it is my meditation.
I opened myself up to a few custom orders for my Waldorf toddler dolls last week on my Facebook page, so this week each evening I find myself with needle and thread, bringing dolls to life. Six sweet babies, being made for six sweet children for holiday gifts.
Oh yes, I love the simple work of making something magical form from fabric and thread.
What about you? What is your meditation these days?
