The Lantern Walk

We read stories about Saint Martin and sang Lantern songs all day long..

The Lantern Walk is such a magical part of journey to the holidays.. the girls look so forward
to this each year and this one was especially so, since they are coming of age to really understand Saint Martin's story.

We used our watercolor painting for lanterns and they finger knitted the handles. Pattern from Earthways.

We used Jodie Meslers's Martinmas songs from her blog.
It was a brisk, windy night, and somehow I feel it is the decent into the winter season.
A warm cappuccino and some knitting will top off the night. *wink*


  1. Lovely lanterns! We have some of Jodie's songs...need to dig in and start using them. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Your lanterns turned out wonderful! I'm sure you had fun on Martinmas :D Can't wait for Jodie's session tonight!!!! "See" you then! ;D
