Canterbury Tails




Working on the composition for my Knight's Tale-themed block. I knew I'd finally get to use that pic of Loki and Freya playing tug (a favorite game).


The passage I'm working with:


We strive but as those dogs did for the bone;
They fought all day, and yet their gain was none.
Till came a kite while they were still so wroth
And bore the bone away between them both.

This looks interesting. I hope you'll post progress shots! :-))

How clever! I am also a Chaucer fan. Is the bird a "Kite"? (I hardly know one bird from another)...

Well, it's one of the birds that came up when I googled kite, so it's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;-j
