Santa Lucia day

Today is St Lucia’s day and a wonderful festival of light in Scandinavia, where the days are so short and darkness lives at this time if year.  The images of girls wearing crowns of candles are beautiful and so lovely to see the traditions of other countries.  There is a fabulous blog hop of Scandinavian bloggers to create a Swedish Advent Calendar: 24 days of posts from 24 different bloggers.  here is day 2 with a wonderful printable St Lucia crown.

things been v quite here as work is super busy and the things I have made are Christmas gifts – although I do have a dress awaiting cutting out from a trip up to ray stitch  going to try a lining it with a fabric from William Gee – amazing little shop in Hackney and testing out using 120 weight industrial thread on my machine – so far its been great.  Plans of a skirt in some fabulous sequins, Francis from The Maker’s Atelier advised a trip to Goldhawk Road as the fabric she used in the photo shoot was from Ditto and they had sold out.  Sadly was diverted on my way to Shepards Bush and do love the fabrics from Till the sun goes down.  Have a few weeks of from Friday and hope to be back with some more fun makes.
