|Hermione the Unicorn by Dawn Toussaint|
|Side view to show off Mane.|
There is a spell of pure joy and peace that is found in learning to love what we already have. This everyday magic can be found: in the quiet early mornings before everyone wakes, a stolen kiss, long talks with someone you love late at night, in joy of sport, or hidden moments with a ball of string and a couple of sticks. The laugh of a small child is as a wizard's spell to sorrow, and the wonder of simple hot meal and warm bed can wipe away the weariness of a long day. Finding the magic in the ordinary is every bit as much an art and science, as the magic wizards in the fantasies I love practice.
|Finished in Mid-April. Back view for the mane.|
My favorite new kind of string magic is spinning. It amazes me that a stick with a little weight on it and a ball of fluff are all it takes to make beautiful yarn, and I am learning quickly, as is evidenced by my most recent creation.
|Finished a couple weeks ago. 4ply from mixed wool roving. About 200yds sock weight. I am rather absurdly proud of it and have no idea what to do with it.|
|Study in 3-D shapes and shading form a couple days ago.|
