St. Lucia Doll

   Several months ago I had the idea to create a large St. Lucia doll to put on my Swedish Christmas Tree. All decked out in her crown with candles and a beautiful embroidered skirt, I envisioned her to be like a pretty Christmas angel, but Swedish style.
   Well, things just got in the way of that plan– what with shows, gift making, and all the rest. But, in a case of ‘better late than never’ I finally have finished little St. Lucia– complete with curling sheep’s wool hair, a crown with real candles (not that I’ll light them…) and a wreath decorated with lace and gingerbread! Here she is:

   I’m so happy with how she turned out, she was worth the wait I think (as good things often are!) and I’m dreaming of an entire full-sized tree for my Swedish Christmas obsession next winter. But until then…I’m happy to watch the world slowly bud and green out.
   I do like the snugness and cozyness of winter, but when spring appears it’s always a relief, isn’t it? And Holy Week and Easter are just around the corner. I’m looking forward to it!~

   Hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend!~
An extra early ‘God Jul’ to you 😉
