With the arrival of the New Moon in Leo this afternoon, it's time for a TUSAL update. As a reminder, "TUSAL" is an acronym for "Totally Useless Stitch ALong"; check out Daffycat's blog for more info. Now this particular new moon looks tailor-made for crafters. Here's the astrology blurb:
Magnetic vibes are dancing about during this vibrant New Moon phase. They have the potential to spark more joy and bursts of creativity. The time of a New Moon in the Lunar phase is that of fresh new awareness and intentions. It feels like fresh dug up soil full of nutrients, perfect for planting new seeds symbolic or literal. Set time aside to set a new intention for the time of the New Moon in Leo. During this time, the themes and attention are drawn to unconditional love, self-expression, individual style, creativity, joy, heart’s wisdom, romance, hobbies, playfulness, innocence, inner child within or physical children.
Do you think the parts about "playfulness" and "inner child" explain my strange diversion into amigurumi crochet last week? Definitely that little octopus, with his eight legs to sew on, created a pile of orts. Because the yarn was held double, the number of orts was doubled. The little jar looks almost full but there's still room if I squish them down. For a minute or two the TUSAL jar held the cat's interest ... until it was clear there weren't any cat treats to be had.
