I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

U - Unicorn

24th April "U" Post

Thank goodness it's Friday... and it's almost over and I am only now getting my post done!!

Today is Friday 24th April and Day 21 of the "Blogging from A to Z April 2015 Challenge".

Today is "U" - "Unicorn"

Unicorn: The unicorn is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiralling horn projecting from its forehead.   In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, it was commonly described as an extremely wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin. 

I have always been fascinated by the legend of Unicorns... and always wished that they really existed! But then again who is to say that they don't exist!  After all they are in the realm of fairies and we all believe them, don't we? :o)

There never was any question what I would stitch for "U"!  One of the "faces" of the Joan Elliott SAL design I am currently stitching on is a "Unicorn"!

I managed to only stitch a tiny bit of this design last night... today was another early morning so less than an hour of stitching was done before bed!

I still haven't finished the first face but I just had to make a start on the unicorn!

Now it is getting close to bed time again... we have another very early start tomorrow as we are going to Anzac Day Dawn Service so it will be up at 4am to start the day!  So no stitching tonight.... but I will be back tomorrow sometime with my "V" post.

Til then....

Happy stitching and happy blogging!
Hugs xx

A unicorn, what could be better for the U. And when it comes from Joan Elliott it's even better.
