INCHIE, THISTLE


Weekly Challenge
'Thistle'

   I do not have any Scottish running through my veins, but when I looked up thistle on Pinterest, I did come across this. It is a traditional Scottish luckenbooth. It is given to the bride by the groom as a wedding gift or as a token of love before a wedding. If the couple pins it to the garments of their first born baby, it is said the family will be lucky. 
   So I decided to draw a picture of a luckenbooth, with a Scottish flag in the background. And what does this have to do with a thistle? Well, the Scottish Thistle is in the center of this brooch.

   Have an awesome week!!! 
I think I'm off to working on some projects I've been putting off, for a while now!
See you all next week, as we inch through this one!!

Thank you for the cultural lesson. I can see how the intertwined hearts would be a significant symbol of everlasting love and devotion. Great idea to depict it for an inchie! Have a brilliant day! c
