WIP Wednesday

Hello all! Happy New Year’s Eve (and Happy New Year’s Day, in advance)!

I am still stitching away on last week’s WIP Poppies. This week, I also picked up a project that I started last summer (as in 2013). It’s interesting how when you look at a piece you stitched or are stitching, you can recall what was going on in your life at the time. For instance with this piece, I was still in college and living in a dark, damp, cramped, small basement apartment in my hometown. I was nursing extreme anxiety with my nights full of cross stitching and Poirot episodes (and yes I admit, Murder She Wrote; I am complete fan- it doesn’t matter how young or old you are, Angela Lansbury is amazing). I wanted a piece that was bright and cheerful. I saw this pattern in The World of Cross Stitching magazine, and I fell in love with it. I also have never grown out of loving anthropomorphic animals in stories and shows. I will also never grow out of it. So, this was an ode to all of the happiness of nature and of fairy tales.

The original artwork by Helz Cuppleditch has a river flowing alongside the caravan. I’m debating on how to add this detail into my stitched piece as it was not in the pattern itself.

Happy stitching!
