Patterns: Little Redcap

I had such fun stitching this one up! I think it looks so delicate and sweet. The pattern is called Into The Wood: Little Redcap the Youngest and is by Cathy Gaubert. I love the text at the bottom of the piece, which reads 'her roots held fast to the forest floor and she was content'.

This embroidery will stay in it's hoop and have pride of place on my bedroom wall but I also have a feeling I'll be stitching it up again as I think it would also look great on a simple white or blue knee length skirt, but oh this could look good on so many things!
