What is a medi-pouf?

Well, that´s what I called my latest, now completed DIY-project, a meditation pouf (or cussion). Being quite wound up lately, I decided to give Zen meditation another try, to calm my always-busy mind. Simply buying a meditation cussion would be waaaay too easy = boring, so I quickly took stock of the stuff I had handy, saw I had everything I needed to sew such a thing (not surprising), ordered some filling (some kind of spelt wheat) and here is the result:

It is very comfy, its top and bottom is made of soft felt material and the colourfully printed fabric is from Singapore (I still have some of it left, its gorgeous) – it looks nice and the filling reminds me of something I find VERY calming and nice: horses munching their oats ;-). If you are a horse-friend like me and have experienced how absolutely wonderfully calming horses can be while dozing or munching , the fabulous smell of hay and straw and grain in a stable, you might understand why this filling adds perfectly to the oblivion I am working towards in the next months ;-). It sure will be a huge challenge for me to just sit still for some time and NOT think, just breathe…but I am absolutely willing to give it a thorough go.

Tiny tools for a crafty faun

Hi there,
what would Mac,the crafty one of the two faunian brothers be without his tools – as he usually spends his day building or repairing things.
In addition,  I made him an utility-belt to keep his hammer, knife and such handy. I find it quite nice and practical…wouldn´t mind to have such a thing myself 😉
My next endeavor will be a nice elegant wooden desk for George to write on, and some other little accessoires for both of them.

Tadaah: Meet Louis LeMur and his little son Ringo

Finally, after quite some time of sculpting and painting and sewing, here we have the thoughtful and agile assistant of Faunia´s mayor Miles, Louis LeMur.

He always has a good advice and and intelligent remark at hand to keep Miles´s meandering comments at bay.

Louis´ little son Ringo, who is still a bit too small to attend school, loves to accompany him at work, when mom Stella is busy giving her dancing workshops.

Ringo loves to cuddle his red felt teddy bear, to listen to the two grownups and to roll himself into a furr ball when joining Miles for his after-lunch-nap on the comfy office Sofa.
