Sometimes you are asked to stitch a sampler for a special person and even though the design is left completely up to you, there is a theme to follow. Well this piece is one of those and even though I love to be creative sometimes it is a tad difficult to see what they want with what I have in mind. So after a month or two of this sitting on the back burner I did some collaborating with a few good friends and was given an idea that I flew with and I am happy with the final outcome. Here we have what I came up with for my cousins Grandson.
I tell you this,,, I was dead against doing cutesy little safari animals... just doesn't do anything for me and if I am to be liking what I am stitching, then I am to be stitching what I like. Call me selfish but I would rather stitch a piece that a child will always want to have on their bedroom walls rather than a piece they will outgrow in 11 years. So with any luck this will win over everyone and will hang on Jackson's walls forever.
