Wild Women Run 5K/10K! is one of my Wild Woman series. It was inspired by a couple of ambitious running goals set by my running partner and I. Two women in our 60’s, she had never run and I hadn’t run consistently for many years. We set our first goal to get to a 5K distance – and we did it! Feeling invincible, we set a goal of getting to 10K by my 65th birthday – and we met it again! Wild Women Run 5K/10K reflects the joy we feel at being able to run. Rug hooking and wet felting on linen, using recycled, commercial and hand spun fibres and fabrics. 15″ x 18.5″ $395
My Wild Woman mats are a departure from my healing mats in that they are not abstract in design. Each Wild Woman mat incorporates all of the eight Chakra colours. Having all eight colours feels like the woman in the mat is in alignment with her body and soul. She has clear, flowing, energy.
These mats are playful. I find them heart lifting to design and hook, so will choose to do them when I need a little bit more lightness in my life. And yes, they are somewhat autobiographical.
Being a Wild Woman is feeling free to express yourself, to have fun. It means being true to yourself. There is also an element of nature and wildness, like being moved by the earth’s rhythms. When I am feeling like a Wild Woman I feel taller, more powerful, unstoppable.
A Wild Woman feels free – to be part of the sisterhood, to be herself, to dance, to move freely and to say what is in her heart. A Wild Woman knows what she needs and gives herself permission to go for it, to accept it. She is wild from a place of inner joy, but also from inner anger and righteousness.
