This looks wonderful. Like the others I never heard of that tale but I'm always pleased when I can learn something from another country.
Hope you will share one or two of your wonderful designs (love your icelandic santa) with us :o)
PS: Worked a long time for a big swedisch furniture company and loved the stories about Tomte.
Thanks, but that design is taken from the book so I don´t dear to share it.
You did a great job. I really like. This makes me want to find the story and read it.
Well done :)
I'm sure the grandchildren will appreciate having this, and your digitizing is really good. I'm wondering what the story was? It looks like the mother is either welcoming the boy home, or telling him good-bye, but it is a happy voyage, anyway. How wonderful that you can see the love on their faces from just such a few digitized lines. Very well done, Njola. Hugs, Marji
It´s a children story called The last troll after an icelandic author Steinar Berg. It has been translated to english.
Asyou can guess the woman is the troll
I looked it up, Njola, it's a great story! I found out Steinar Berg runs his farmhouse as a guesthouse. If I would come to Iceland I would stay there. Oh, I wish, I wish. Thanks, hugs, Marji
Hopefully you will visit our country, the trolls are hiding in the mountains he he :)
Já þú hefur ekki setið auðum höndum Njóla mín - en þetta er flott.
Very nice :)
