I'm officially in love with embroidering scenes from children's books and think I'll be doing a lot of that for a bit. Here is my most recent.

I'm going to keep it in the hoop as a sort of frame and make a collection of children's book work to hang on a wall in my house. So far I have Matilda and Harold. I'm hoping to do a Pigeon (who cannot drive the bus), maybe the Lorax, possibly the Giving Tree, and then I'm stumped.
