I am in such a pink mood today… well, I have been, it’s almost time for bed, but all through the day I’ve been in one of those uplifted, loving moods where my good vibes seem to expand, and nothing, not even my boss joining me at work for three and a half solid hours could dampen!!!!!
Part of this is due to….
A perfectly blue sky…..
And sunshine streaming through our lounge windows, activating my rainbow harvesting system….
Sun worship… who is worshipping who?
The other thing that has put me in a loving pink mood was the completion of my latest granny square cushion! I’m sure you remember these from yesterday!
I was going to show you this when I put up the tutorial, but it’s just so pretty I thought it deserved an entire post to itself.
I stuffed it with this… ew… frightening polyester, 1970’s hotel room, disgusting cushion! It’s SALMON! I would just like to remind you all at this point, that I don’t buy smelly op shop cushions, it’s ok if they’re just a bit yuck, but bad smells and very suspicious stains put me off… the rest are fair game, keep them out of a landfill I say!
This beautiful cushion needed a particularly nice photo shoot, so I LUGGED KB’s chair down 33 winding steps, past the downstairs neighbour’s front door (glad she didn’t see me in my PJ’s, grunting, camera in cardigan pocket!) to my outdoor photo studio! he he
KB’s chair is really really heavy.
But it was worth it….
Aren’t they the perfect colour match!? The chair used to be burgundy, and was quite a dark pink when we found it at the op shop 15 months ago, but the extreme sunlight at our house has faded it to a lovely shade of pink! (In my opinion anyway!!!)
Oh how I love my cushion….
We decided on a name for the square…
I liked “Granny Squircle” but my beloved KB as usual was right on the money, naming it the “Grandala square.”
Oh, and speaking of mandalas, click here to see some amazing digital mandalas, made by the divine Atmara, who introduced herself to me because of my crochet mandalas….. her video clips are a sight to behold! Enjoy!
See you in a couple of days!!!!! Lots of love from Alice and Raymond XXXXX
