I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited about the photos I have just taken! I cannot wait to show them to you, and look at them myself too!!!
I loved reading all of your kind comments on my last post, it was lovely to hear so much positive feedback! I laughed at a couple of comments about me popping coffee pills which is why it seems that I crochet very fast! To be honest with you, I actually don’t drink much coffee, I drink a lot of decaf plunger coffee, but if I drink too much real coffee, I get terribly anxious, so keep it to a mimimum! Crochet is my passion, completely and utterly! I always wanted to be an artist but I’m terrible at painting and drawing. As soon as I learned to crochet, I just fell in love with the potential it has for creativity, the shapes, the colour blending! I feel like at last I have found my artistic medium and I am completely and utterly hooked! Apparently I even talk about it in my sleep sometimes…
Do you talk in your sleep? I’m told I do it all the time… sometimes I can get a bit embarassed about the fact that the silly things I think about come out of my mouth when I’m sleeping!
I just got sooooo sidetracked then! I wanted to show you my latest mandala!!! This one only took me a few hours and I know I said this about the last one, but I think it’s my favourite yet! It’s KB’s fave so far….
I managed to get outside for about 5 minutes between rain showers to get these shots! It has been raining for 4 days and I’ve got a couple of little things I made which I need to photograph outdoors, so I’m impatiently waiting for the rain to stop!
I love how this mandala is so cosmic. I love planets and stars and galaxies, and this one is just so… out of this world!
I’m going to take a break from mandalas for a while (let’s see about that though!) because I have an exciting, oh yes, *so exciting* new creation to show you next time! I was having a play last night and created something I’m thrilled by… It’s still a mandala theme, but just a wee bit different.
So, I took out the rest of the mandalas and photographed them all together!
An explosion of colour!
I am in love.
How are your mandalas going? I’ve seen a few lovely ones around, and some delicious bunting! Click here for look at one lovely example! Oh my, I just clicked “here” and she has made a stunning coffee plunger cozy too! Make sure you pop over to see Tania’s lovely work!
OK, I’m going to be highly disciplined and turn the internet off, to devote the rest of the morning to study! I have essays-a-plenty on the go, so time to go and do some work! If I do, I can sit down and crochet guilt-free tonight!
Oh, but before I go… I had a special request from the lovely Vanessa…
Spot his mouse under his paw! Don’t you just want to run your fingers throught that luscious fur!
Washing in the sun… and talking to the birds!
Lots of love to you from Alice and Raymond XX
