The Christmas Stocking giveaway prompted another idea.
"Community Medicine Bags"
This idea coupled with my de-clutter at all costs really got me going.
As previously posted in photographs, I gathered together a collection of yarns I thought I'd not easily use. My lesser liked yarns. For one reason or another, I'd reached for other yarns before these. I thought I'd make wild, out of my norm medicine bags. There was a certain freedom in the New Plan. Because I would not be making these with any one person in mind, there would not be 'favorite colors', texture or thickness concerns or aesthetically pleasing matching as a goal - there would be only the making, experimenting, weaving. Not making for a special someone has me not meditating on one person as I make the strap, but instead thinking about the pure giving, the community, feeling the excitement of planning where to leave the Community Medicine Bags. Grace's comment on the Christmas Stocking post started my wheels turning! So far it has been great fun!
I put on all 10 for a quick photo ☺
I've tucked tiny "FREE - ENJOY!" tags into them.
The other side of the TAGS have secret messages.
There is already a new one on the little loom. ☺
“Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints!”
May you have fun, fun, fun!
