Princess and the Pea

The Princess and the Pea embroidery
stitched by GeorgiaMcDonald

When I was a kid, I remember being annoyed when I read stories and the accompanying illustrations were boring. As I recall, I loved the Princess and the Pea story but the illustration in my book was black and white and so dull. If I had seen this embroidery, I would have been blown away... the little kid in me just says Hooray!


Stitched from a pattern by Polka Dot Bunny.

  12. This is beautiful! I can't believe that I too have been stitching the Princess and the Pea this week - inspired by a doll set I saw on someone's blog! But this is so pretty!
