Slaying Dragons



Gwennyth hated her name. It was far too romantic and silly, and she was not the type of girl who wanted to be rescued from a fire-breathing dragon by a knight in shining armor. Why couldn't she have been named something sensible and no nonsense, like Jane or Anne?

Philip was browsing through on-line profiles when he saw her name. Oddly enough, he didn't find it romantic or silly, though he did shorten it to Gwen after meeting her. She called him Phil, right from the start. Neither of them could believe that no one had ever thought to call them that before.

And they lived happily ever after.

Soooo beautiful, will you be making this into a pattern?

Cynthia Newcomer Daniel said...

I won't be making a pattern exactly like this one, (it was an experimental piece, and even I'm not sure what I did in parts of it!) but I have several other patterns in my shop that use this technique, and I will be adding more, I'm sure.
