Incredibly good, yes, but just a little weird?

Despite the amazing work that has been put into the making of them, I found them a little bit creepy.ponder

I just love this seasonal quilt, the artist is from Denmark so very close to Sweden where they have a special ceremony on Saint Lucia's Day.

The candle headdress has always worried me about Santa Lucia!  Lots of work in the quilt, as Val said.

I'll try that again!

I saw this in Lucy's Attic24, and, although she described it as a print, I decided to try to make it - I have been cutting out little squares from stash fabrics this morning for the 'bedcover'.

Our grandchildren are due to arrive in a week's time, and I thought it would be something for them to play with!

That's a good idea, Elsa - hmmm - perhaps I will !

However, the 'little' squares are a bit bigger than I anticipated, so now I think I'll try to make a girl and boy rag doll (one each of the children), as they will end up being rather large beds. I'll make some bunnies too - they can be the cuddlies for the rag dolls!!

What have I got myself into? doh

Thank you Danuta - I have missed all my 'mates' - but too much else going on in this stressful extended family for me to find the effort to sit and participate!  However, now I'm in France, I am a bit distanced from all of them. whistle

The nice thing is that next week, daughter and family arrive here (they are currently camping about 50 miles away!) and two days after that, our son will arrive. So looking forward to that. laugh
