Hello, and happy summer solstice! 😀 [big smiley]
Just wanted to share a simple post to say that I wish you a good summer! I hope that this season is filled with things that bring light into your life and that fill your heart with love and good memories. ♡♡♡ [3 hearts]
For me, solstices are about resting, reflection and connecting with nature, spending time with loved ones, and making a bit of magic in whatever ways are meaningful to me at the time. I also try to get a new plant at this time, too– it’s something I just started recently, and it makes me so excited! 😀 [big smiley] Today, I’m planning to take today off to get some (always needed) rest and to enjoy the holiday and make a little magic with my crochet hook and a bunch of yarn.
I’m hoping to continue working on my daisy granny square blanket today if my carpal tunnel lets up a bit. This has been a veeeery long project of mine that I started about 3-4 years ago– so long! I call it mega blanket because I designed its size to be big enough for multiple people to share it and not have to fight for room underneath, and it slowly became much, much bigger than I anticipated. lol
The granny squares are five inches wide and tall, and they’re joined by a flat braid method that adds a few more inches all around. The braid method is just gorgeous, though, (and simple!) and the parts that are coming together so far look so very pretty. It looks exactly like I had hoped it would: like a field of daisies. :] [smiley]
So that’s how I wanna spend my day today, relaxing and making more magic on my couch. I might try to go for a walk later, too, if it’s not too hot. I like to try to spend a little time outdoors on the solstices to remind myself to connect with nature.
Do you celebrate the solstices? How do you like to celebrate if so?
Oh, and I almost forgot! I finish up my first giveaway on Instagram today, and I’m so excited to see who wins! What a fun way to celebrate, too, by sharing a piece of mine with you all! 😀 [big smiley]
Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a great solstice!
