Robin Hood – Little House Needleworks

A wee bit blurry, but at the same time I believe that it adds a whimsical touch to the piece.  I have been enjoying the Little House Needlework designs and my wish list is full of them.

He hid on the moon and etched out a bed, stars and clouds covered his slumbering form.  A finger of sunlight tickled his nose,  kissed his cheeks and
