Stitches That Charm

~Rarely have we searched to find a library book so that we could own it and read it over and over at home. Since we checked this out, my son (two and a half) has had me read (and sing) it to him every night. I'm not really judging the stitchery from a fine-art perspective. I know that the way it's done and the homemade quality is heartwarming in the very best sense. We find ourselves longing for this book and breathing a sigh of relief when we open it and start to read. I find myself~~ endlessly facinated by the patchworked stitched borders, the lovingly created little characters, and the humor underlying the illustrations. For example Old Mother Hubbard has a procession of little dogs dead, laughing, smoking a pipe, etc. in which the simple little doggy wins my heart every night with his grins and tricks. It is just endlessly charming, amusing, and captivating in turns. And brings us gently to sweet dreams! Thank you for this book, Belinda Downes. We'll keep it forever,~~ and be sure I will be looking for anything else you create.~
