Arabella

Okay, so I was fumbling around on the living room floor yesterday and a faery darted out from behind the sofa. To save her from Jynx, who is a Supreme Catcher of Many Small Wriggly Things I caught her under a water glass and took her over to the faery front door (the one by the television set). I put her down there and she squeaked her thanks. We got to talking about the neighborhood and I asked if I could take a picture of her for my blog and she shook her head vigorously "No!" She made it clear that to take a picture might mean her soul was captured in 2D and she didn't like the thought of it. So I asked if I could sketch her. Again, she said no. Could I made an image of her in needlepunch embroidery since it wasn't all that 2 dimensional? She reluctantly agreed. In fact, I think she kind of liked the idea.

What a lovely story... and she's looking quite cheeky, too! :-)

What a cute fairy. I'm sure she is an asset to the neighbourhood. Wonder if there are more little people around?
