tell us a story…

Ta-da! If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you’ll have noticed that I’ve used the quote from the March Hare every now and then. The story behind it is very brief: It’s the only quote in all of Alice in Wonderland that mentions anything having to do with books or stories.

I enjoy embroidery when I’m not knitting. There’s something fascinating about bringing fabric to life with colored thread. And it moves so quickly!

To make the pattern, I typed out the quote and printed it out. After a bit of freehand sketching and considerable erasing to make it just how I wanted it, I traced the picture onto fabric. I’m using an eight inch hoop and embroidery thread I scavenged from the box of thread. Talk about a tangled mess…

I actually have more done than the picture shows. The computer is acting up, so I haven’t been able to upload pictures. I have all the words except Hare, the watch numbers finished, and the suits on the teacup.

I’m really pleased with how it’s stitching up! I think using the playing card suits on the teacup was a clever touch, if I do say so myself. 🙂 I’ll post a picture of the finished project once I’m done.

What do you think of my embroidery? Have you ever stitched a book quote? Leave a comment!
