Midsummer and Competition :)

Standard

Hi there!

I hope everyone is doing well 🙂 My posts here have been a little erratic lately, for which I apologise , but I have been trying to find the right balance between frequency of posts versus quality content. It is something I want to really get right, but like a lot of things in life it is a new learning experience for me, so please bear with me while I find my feet 🙂

Last Saturday (the 21st of June) was the longest day of the year here in Ireland (and a lot of other places of course!) and thankfully the weather was beautiful and I am happy to say that I had a really lovely day. All things faery have been on my mind lately, partly because of the time of year but more so to do with the fact that I am currently reading “Faery Tale” by Signe Pike. It is a lovely book, about Signe’s search to find enchantment in this modern world, which is something I have also been searching for for the past while. So because of these influences and a few other more personal ones my next amigurumi design is going to be a faery 🙂 I have started work on her, and so far it is going well! Also Mr. Art Badger tells me he will be writing a few words on the Summer Solstice, so keep on eye out for that 🙂

And so it begins.

Hey there! My name is Heather aImagend I have started this blog as a companion blog to http://www.moonofarann.com my other website. I have recently discovered the limitless world of amigurumi; the Japanese style of crocheting creatures and basically anything your imagination can come up with! So my imagination has come up with a whole world, inhabited by all manner of weird and wonderful beings!

My aim for this blog is to document my journey from initial thought conception through to (hopefully) the finished product and everything else in between. I hope that anyone reading this gains as much pleasure from reading it as I do from writing it and that if you have some free time, you can stop by and take a step into the magical world that is Arann, where Badger’s talk (& have Twitter accounts!) fairy’s flutter about and strange and mythical creatures go about their daily lives, unaware that they are strange and mythical 🙂
