I finished that beautiful book a few days ago and it has left me wanting to dress up in beautiful dresses and colorful shoes and find a magical land. Well, I always want to find a magical land, but the emphasis this time would be dressing up.
Aren't butterflies some of the most wondrous things? There was one summer a while back where there was a surplus of them, that was the summer I worked at a green house and the butterflies would get stuck inside and couldn't find their way out. I think I save a good dozen or so of them that year. It was the first time I'd ever held a butterfly. That's what I imagine magic feels like.
I fear this might be getting rather random, but I suppose that doesn't matter if I feel a small connection. I read a book a long time ago in which feathers grew with the man's hair, I've been fascinated with the idea ever since. Maybe that's weird, but I think it sounds beautiful.
One thing that's hard about falls here in Fairbanks is how there aren't any red fall leaves. I still love autumn here, but I always feel as if there's something missing from them. So if your around nice, red, fall leaves right now, blow them an extra kiss for me, will you? To show them that I miss them.
I finished my socks, I love how bright they are. They are so soft and delicate that I'm afraid to wear them. On the pattern it said they are perfect for curling up in and watching the rain, so maybe I'll do that. With tea and a book and cookies.
I also made these wrist warmers, you can't tell from the picture, but they are a beautiful shade of deep purple, almost like eggplant. I'm wearing them right now. I've made lots of other things that I need to show you, I just put these all together because they seemed to fit. I would like to thank you all very much for your sweet wishes concerning the auditions, I'm mostly trying to keep myself occupied so I don't think about them. We'll see what happens though.
I love you all very much and I hope your having a beautiful week,
