The Dala Horse, and some local fun

Hello! Hope you are keeping warm (or cool in the Southern Hemisphere)! I’m rather afraid to look outside, myself. I went out to a local hand crafted store. The Weims love going over & playing with everyone’s dogs, so I kinda know a bunch of the guys.

It was a lot of fun and I ran into a random assortment of people I haven’t seen in awhile. Here are some pics

This was the first thing in the gallery I could see & probably my favorite gallery piece there. He’s cute in a creepy kind of way.

Sorry I haven’t made a post in over a week, I am always making presents full-time in December and I injured myself last week, so I’m a bit behind on my pattern making. I’m clumsy, it’s genetic.

I found this great Swedish tradition of the Dala Horse, on my holiday Internet adventures.

They are super cute (and the nerd in me loves the historical significance) so I decided to try and make some patterns. It was a lot more challenging than I thought it would be. I made them as large washcloth patterns and a pillow, but they could also be used for simple cross stitch ornaments as well. Great for some hand made Christmas or Yule presents!

Enjoy!
