I found two references to sky (this week's word for Every Inchie Monday) in this part of the book Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. Believe me - it was not easy. The first is to the song Eddie sings - "When you walk through the storm, hold your head up high....At the end of the storm is a golden sky" and the sweet silver song of the Lark (if memory serves). This is the same song the word rain came from. [chapter 17]
A little bit farther back in the book [chapter 16], The Heart of Gold is descending towards Magarathea where "the suns now stood high in the black sky, the pyrotechnics of dawn were over, and the surface of the planet appeared bleak and forbidding...."
There may be another reference farther along in the book, but I couldn't find it.
When I was growing up, my father had me totally convinced that there was another colour called sky-blue-pink. It was a sort of family joke and is very descriptive of the sky at sunrise or sunset:
Quilling skies are hard to do - so this time I have a bird flying in the blue sky with the sun, (or moon - it is a white button) in the corner.
Hope you all get the chance to see a sky-blue-pink sky this week. They are truly beautiful and for me bring back such warm memories of my dad.
Lately I've been into crocheting amigurumi - small crocheted creatures. They can be people, animals, fantasy, plants, inanimate objects - anything you can think of. Here are a few of my early creations. Most of them are for friends or family.
Teal hungry hungry hippo with my helper. She is eating cat food - mostly because this was the first one I made and I hadn't figured out yet how to make a heavy head stand up.
Squirrel with acorn.
Koala with green bow tie and fuzzy ears.
Purple variegated elephant.
More to come later as I get them all photographed.
