Maybe a Scottish Water Monster is a Bad Idea

This is a picture I really like:

But it was not until AFTER I printed it out, that I realized this is a kelpie.

Kelpies lure people onto their backs, then drown them. Some poor soul thinks they're getting on the back of a pretty little pony and only when it's too late do they realize they are riding to their death.

I've been wanting to embroider this horse/kelpie for a child's quilt- until I realized I might cause nightmares.

I think I'll have to find something else entirely for the child's quilt. And maybe the kelpie can go in my Etsy shop.

Hi, do you know the author of that kelpie drawing, or at least remember where you have found it?
