Sewing this little wall hanging brought back memories of playing ship on my friends' bunk bed, with a plethora of stuffed animals as passengers. There's an obnoxious duck that really stands out and, of course, my mostly flat cat, as well as a koala bear who hailed from Boston and liked orchestra music. And let's not forget the pink bear and the hordes of hippos that would, if you didn't watch out for them, PWSSSSSSSSSS you in the head.
This has, of course, very little to do with the crafting at hand, but you see, the pattern for the tree was given to me by the same family (who might as well be part of our family) who had the bunk bed and the crazed hippos (they actually PWSSSSSSED out of love, though). I'm so excited to see them for New Year's in a couple of weeks!
