enter lad number four
Like the rest Þvörusleikir is 7″
Next lad will be up on the 24th
Since I made my Yuletide lads quilt before last Christmas, I’ve been getting requests for the patterns. So I finally have the first one ready for you guys. I’m planing on having them all up before Christmas so You can enjoy your very own Yuletide quilt for the holidays
The Icelandic Yuletide lads are based on an old poem by Jóhannes Úr Kötlum. The lads are much like Santa is for the rest of the world (only we have 13 of them )
so here is lad number one: stekkjastaur or Sheep-Cote Clod
the pattern is 7″
the pattern may be a little different than the picture since I’ve updated it since I did the quilt
keep checking in cause the next one should be up in a few days

so you’re into fandom and quilting (even if you are new to quilting or just curious) you should really go check out the announcement that was posted yesterday
My cat, Skutla passed away this morning. She was 17yrs old (born April 6th 1994) I was there when she was born. although it was almost midnight by the time she was born. I was allowed to be at my best friends house (she had the mother) until all the kittens were born. She was the last, and smallest of the kittens born just before midnight on april 6th, 5 days before my 10th birthday.
She came to our house June 1st 1994 and she has always been my best friend. Having my illness (social phobia) makes it hard for me to make human friends. It’s only recently that I have been able to make some awesome human friends on the internet but even then most of them are on another continent.
So this is a Goodbye to my best friend and sometimes parent Skutla Snældudóttir. I will always love you and I miss you already.
Rest in peace my love
