This block is from Cobi in the Netherlands. Her theme for this RR is "the violet hour".
The hour where the fairies and other creatures comes to live.
I decided to make 'white wives' on the block. A phenomena in the moors and the lower parts of land in Europe. The time of the day that the mist is floating over the fields.
Here a translated description from wikipedia encyclopedia:
The belief in white wives finds its roots in the Germanic time. ( before the middle ages)
The megalithic monuments were seen as their home. According to the history they almost are dressed in white or grey-white, what would explain the name.
There is also a link with "knowing wives", so called fortune-teller. White wives were also known as the ghosts of witches or of other women who had done evil.
Except in the white wives dolmens they lived in small hills and mounds. They had the entry and exit to their holes there.
At night they came up, slowly floating.
White wives are almost entirely known in Europe.
They are called for example in France 'Dames Blanches'. In the Netherlands are legends about white wives mainly in eastern and northern Netherlands.
Also the spider in its web is present in the violet hour :)
The whole block after work of Jeanne, Debbie, Lauri and me. Now it goes home to Cobi.
