Holiday and TUSAL

Am back after an absolutely wonderful, week long holiday to Kerala. I should say this was more of a spiritual trip and a refresher.

The place we visited is called Vallikkaavu, a very small island village surrounded by the Arabian sea. In the middle is situated the beautiful ashram of our beloved Amma, Mata Amritanandamayi.

There were pooja sessions, meditations, bhajans, question and answer sessions with Amma Herself. We had a meditation on the shores of the beach one evening.

Meditating with Amma during the sunset was absolute bliss. V's bday fell during the week and we celebrated it in Amma's presence.

We got a cake baked at the ashram canteen and was cut by Amma!!! An unforgettable experience for all of us.

And now we are totally re-charged and refreshed. A trip to the ashram always makes this to us.

Hehe, Meari I thought magnetic nail polish was the in thing!! Am yet to apply it as we went off on our trip almost as soon as we got the gift. Will definitely post a picture once I do :)

With so much said, it is quite obvious that I did absolutely no stitching. And yes, am late for the August Tusal.

All the progress is from sea shells this time. And now to start with June cottage

That, my dear friends, is all I have today.. Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
