Stitch & Witch - The Witches Table
 
Today was a great day.  The Witches Circle Squared had its first (of many, I hope) Stitch & Witch sessions.  We all had little crafty projects we wanted to work on and we spent a great afternoon in the stunning sunshine (26 degrees) talking and talking and stitching and eating lunch and talking.

I sometimes think that these relaxed easy events in the Witches Circle are the best ones, the ones where we just share our thoughts and idea and make vague (and not so vague) plans for the future.  I have been in many magickal groups over the years and in my experience the best ones were always those where we spent some downtime together talking and sharing our thoughts and experiences.  That is probably why, although I used to be a solitary I far prefer group working...the whole being more than the sum of its parts and all that.

I broke a knitting needle towards the end of the day, lost a load of stitches and am going to start from scratch again having to re-cast on 326 stitches.  Sigh.  I think it is a testament to the day that I only really started to get annoyed about it when I got home.  Because I was so relaxed and having such a good time that when it happened I just didn't worry about it, I just let it wash over me.  I wish I could have that level of zen all the time!

A truly magickal afternoon - all the elements for positive relaxation- sunshine, good friends, good food and lots of sparky conversation leading to some embyonic ideas for the future! Plus I even managed to start on a small tapestry of the "man in the moon" which I have had for years and never got around to starting!

I came home and went out to water the garden as I've planted a number of new plants and it is so unseasinably warm and dry at the moment! This is certainly a time of new beginnings and new projects both in our gardens and within our little Circle!

I was surprised how far you got on that tapestry in such a short space of time, I can't wait to see how far you have got the next time we meet up!
