Well, of course, there has to be a story now.
Once upon a time, a baby was born in California to two homesick Texans. Those parents, after much contemplation and discussion, named the child “Gareth” after Sir Gareth, Knight of the Round Table. His sister, as chance would have it, was named after a poem from The Lord of the Rings.
Did I mention his parents are a bit geeky? No? Well, they are.
This baby only stayed for five months in California before being returned to the land of his forefathers, that is to say, Texas.
That all happened around 13 years ago.
The only dragon in Sir Gareth, Knight of the Round Table’s story is Uther Pendragon, but that’s okay, this Sir Gareth has his own dragon. He drew it for me and said, with a little twinkle in his eye, that he thought it might make a nice paper pieced wall hanging.
Lo and behold, Sir Gareth was right!
