IN THE DAYS when monsters and giants and fairy folk lived in England, a noble knight was riding across a plain... ~ Saint George and the Dragon
Even though it ended up being a two day project (we started the cookies yesterday, before I left for a night-out with friends, and finished decorating them today after our new math tutor left), the kids all really enjoyed creating another Sugar Cookie Story Quilt in honor of the feast of St. George!
They went with pretty much the same design as last year, with a few changes. Mainly they just wanted to make this year's cookie quilt 3-D by standing up the Castle and Dragon, and adding St. George!
A couple lightning bolts "glued" on with melted candy completed the "huge flames that covered all the heavens with smoke and brimstone so that the knight was forced to retreat to save his body from the scorching fire."
And I loved how "St. George" really made sure that fire-breathing dragon "would stir no more..."
Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. ~G. K. Chesterton
Happy (belated) Feast of St. George!
