years ago when i discoverd felting
i instantly felt it was my tool to heal
while working at my big cloths i became in a different state of mind and time
all my feelings of depression suddenly were in another world
i could work for hours forgetting everything around me
so it healed me
the finished cloths were often bought by people who recognised themselves in it
not long after the death of my husband , who needed care which i could give him fortunattely being a former nurse and with help from friends
in 2006 i got an accident and treatment after treatment, operations, revalidation. i found myself here, now not being able to felt any more. not being able to sit more than half an hour before the pain got too severe
But i discovered blogging and through my beloved Jude Hill from http://spiritcloth.typepad.com i "met" Wendy. ( again via Jude you find the links to articles Wendy wrote in Handeye magazinze and others)
Wendy Golden Levitt iis a Jungian oriented Therapist who works with traumatised children and she uses cloth as a medium to heal the children
one of my last big pieces of felt wanted to travel to a brave brave girl.....
Wendy told me the girl feels the energy of my life and it helps her looking at her own pain and realized she is note alone in it
and you know what...brave..brave girl.....
you gave me back the strenght to felt again......little pieces that i can manage while i rest to unstress my back, my wish of healing through felt is coming back......
thank you Jude, thank you Wendy, thank you brave brave lovely beautiful giving girl!
