The Little Bear that Could



There was a little bear who wanted to fly
over the village and high up the sky;
Mama bear said: son, if you believe
there really is nothing that you can't achieve



Featured: WIP embroidery inspired by a story book

  10. Dear Amalia
    Your embroidery is stunning. I agree about 'Persuasion' - it is my favourite Jane Austen book too. I like the 1995 BBC adaptation with Amanda Root as Anne too.
    Have a good rest of the week.
    Best wishes

    1. Yes! The 1995 adaptation is my favorite too! And Ciaran Hinds is the best Captain Wentworth ;-)

  14. I love everything about this piece..... the colors, the stitches, the adorableness of the flying bear and his lil fairy helper, and the childlikeness of the picture. It's as if a child drew it, and it came to life by your stitching magic.

  31. He is adorable! I think you should take up illustrating yourself. You're a true artist.

    I'm so sorry I wasn't able to take up the baton of your very kind Liebster Award. March has been a truly mad month for me, and the craziness promises to continue into April. Thank you so much for thinking of me.

    P.S. I too prefer Persuasion to any of Miss Austen's other excellent books. It's such a lovely, wistful, autumnal story with a happy summery ending. Definitely the best of them all! And though I never envisioned Capt. Wentworth looking anything like Ciaran Hinds, he did a wonderful job of interpreting the character. Sophie Thompson was outstanding as the whiny Mary. :)

    1. When I love a book as much as I love Persuasion, I'm not usually inclined to like the adaptation. But the 1995 one is true to the spirit of the book, as I perceive it, understated and beautifully cast across the board. And I did like them choosing a character actor like Ciaran Hinds rather than a matinee idol in the form of Rupert Penry Jones.

      No worries about the Liebster - the point was to show my liking of your blog, so mission accomplished I hope. Where did the month of March disappear to, that is a question that's been puzzling me as well.
