Are you thinking what I’m thinking? It’s the fourth day in a row I’ve done a post… but yet I still haven’t run out of things to talk to you about or more importantly, to show you!
I wanted to save the reveal of the grandala square cushion which I finished last night, wait until at least tomorrow, but now I have the photos I took this afternoon loaded onto my computer, I’m so excited to show you, I just can’t wait!
Between two appointments today, I stopped off at a beautiful part of Wellington called Wilton Bush. It’s just out of the CBD and it’s amazing. I sat in my little car having a hook break (so much healthier than a ciggy, but so much more addictive!) taking a load off my busy mind, then went for a wee walk into the bush to commune with the faeries and other bush dwelling creatures.
I love New Zealand native bush… I’ve told you that before, how much I love it, it’s more amazing than I can show or describe to you even though I wish I could. The energy is so… so… clean and strong and cleansing….
Just what I need right now, as I am having a bit of a stressful time, trying to get a few different parts of my life sorted out in regards to my studies for the next 18 months. It’s been preying on my mind, so I walked into the bush with the intention of letting it all go and handing it over to the higher powers that be, and trusting that everything is going to fall into place.
And let it go I did. As soon as I walked into that bush, and took my first cleansing breath of that oxygen rich air, the healing powers of the bush permeated my mind and soul and all of my worries literally evaporated.
There’s magic in our bush….
It’s a sacred mix of old tall trees, the living hosts to so many other species of plantlife….
And the lush green ferns covering the ground…
Even just looking at the greenness of that photo makes me take a deep cleansing breath….
Did I commune with any faeries today? No… no faeries, but a naughty pixie caught me by surprise…. I saw him, the size of a child just down to my left as I took a photograph. I got such a surprise I actually jumped in the air and gasped, but when I looked with my human eyes he wasn’t there! The little rascal then covered me in tickly tingles and I could feel him laughing with the excitement of actually giving a human a fright…
I felt him giggling and tingling for about five minutes….
I took my grandala cushion here too… thinking I could get some great shots in a different location to KB’s chair and my downstairs outdoor studio!
Do you love?
I was a tad sceptical about the colours of this one… I unpicked a lot of the second round and changed it to grey to mix up the colours instead of blending…
And I’m glad I did…. I am thrilled with the end result.
If you love the mandala effect in the centre as much as me, click here and a magic box will open with a photo tutorial!
I’m having the afternoon off to relax now, the sun is shining and Raymond is in a mouse (toy) hunting mood, so lots of fun to watch…..
oh yes… and I get to really get into my next project. The colours are divine. I’m completely thrilled with it already.
Lots and lots of magical, bush faery, pixie-tingling love to all of you,
