The Story of my Blog Title

Quilt of Dragonflies- My blog is named that for a reason.I am lucky enough to own a genuine Quilt of Dragonflies, which I am sure brings me good dreams when I sleep beneath it. It was given to me by a friend of my mother's, who handmade the entire thing. Color meets pattern in this fantastic piece of artwork which sits on my bed. Brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green intersperse with tie dye dragonflies. I will not hesitate to call it my inspiration.

Let's Be Swedes

The Swedes are happy people
We sing and dance
Clicking heels and spinning with wide smiles
Laughing and joking as friends
For the night
Listening to a story, we are children
Buffet, we eat like adults
We bring risgrynsgröt
Rice pudding
Sing about maidens and frogs
Fiddlers and children
We lose the raffle again
(We do every year)
(Who wins these anyway?)

Being Swedish for a night
Pretending there is snow outside and
The trees are firs
Undisturbed by cars or people
Pretending we know the language
We are those few tonight
Eating and singing
Being happy
Being Swedes
