maybe moonday

A good day's harvest from our little garden. And a thrifted piece of crochet. I notice that neither contain the full color spectrum, but almost.



Today is a waxing moonday in Libra, the sign of balance, neutrality, and agreements. It is the perfect time to notice or bring beauty into our lives, especially with color -- set up or refresh an altar, arrange lovely vignettes on tabletops and window sills, make or shop for clothes, decorate, etc. We're only held back by those maddening moments of indecision that Libra often brings.

Libra rules the lower back, kidneys, hips, and buttocks and we may feel tinges of old injuries or experience flare-ups now. The balance here is that efforts to heal these same parts may also be more effective.

Even though Libra is an air sign, it is still a semi-fruitful time -- and along with the waxing moon, these next days are perfect for planting in the garden.

I'm thinking of making a pillow with the crochet work, maybe with natural or white linen to balance and calm it down a little?

a snuggly cushion would work well! tasty garden produce and a nice piece of crochet too

Nanette said...

the colours of your garden harvest and thrifted harvest match nicely. Look forward to seeing how your cushion turns out.

I love all the color! It's just perfect!

Thanks for the insight into what is really happening in the universe!

Hmm...maybe this is why I felt the need to clear the table of all that was unnecessary (which was everything) and place some candles in the middle

Beautiful crochet-work, Peggy (and lovely with the photo of colorful veggies: both make my mouth water). I am realizing that I prefer the look of that finer-weight yarn in crochet (now that I have a huge supply of heavier weight cotton to crochet blanket squares ;-(). Ahhh, well). I'm still unable to make perfect squares. . . but hanging in there, learning as I go, yet even after undoing and redoing, find that my "squares" are still wonky. Thanks for the inspiration!

Looks like its a bountiful harvest. Its fresh and organic. I love the vibrant color of those vegetables. Really pretty.

love the pairing of the crocheted piece and the veggies - perfect! glad to come here and read - just bought a few plants and I will try to get them in the ground soon!

Always such beautiful presentation here :)
I bet your 'real' tomatoes are tasty!!!

Peggy said...

Thanks, Lyn -- I'm playing around with some different base fabrics for it -- nothing so far though. ;)

Peggy said...

Nanette -- thank you -- not having much luck with the cloth yet. Seems like I need to think bigger than just stitching the crochet onto a base cloth.

Peggy said...

Hi Judy -- thanks, colorful it is! Almost hurts my eyes. ;)

Peggy said...

Deb, oh yes, making beauty...

Peggy said...

Thank you, Chris -- I imagine it'll be a totally different experience with thread versus yarn -- I never thought of that, I might try a little, too! Good luck with the squares, you can correct their wonkiness when you block them, I think.

Thanks, Lyka Yap!

Hi Dee, happy planting and thanks!

Peggy said...

Hi Nancy, thank you and yes the tomatoes are really good this year. It's not been good for tomatoes the last few years though -- so yay!
