Dragonfly Vest

Love for fairies and other forest creatures has never died in me. I'm still a child in my heart.
I got this wool while I was visiting my grandparents in a small town in Latvia called Livani. I found a little yarn shop and obviously I had to have a look inside and I couldn't believe how cheap they sell the yarn there! I paid something like 5 euro for 200 grams of this wool! Would you ever walk away from this offer!
Over-excited with my great bargain I squeezed my yarn in my armpit and decided to have a stroll around the closest forest. As I strolled through the forest where colorful leaves were covering the ground I couldn't help myself but run right through them remembering my childhood when coming from the school we would kick the leaves in the air and roll in them pretending swimming through some imaginary land. Suddenly sad feeling came into me. I realized how much I have missed this country, Latvian woods and sleeping in fields filled with marguerite.. I want to stay here! Right here where I am! Build a little tree house and be a part of the forest creatures! May be become a fairy if it's possible! But I need a gown. The gown witch would make me look like I belong here. And this vest is my imagination of it.
