HARRIET TUBMAN

Hi little hares! This is the last pattern of this season and it is not winter or Christmas themed... it's an historical one: HARRIET TUBMAN. This pattern has its roots in two stories: the Life of a Slave Girls by Harriet A. Jacobs and the real life of Harriet Tubman. Both these women escaped slavery in the 19th century and became unique examples of freedom and pride. I love these 2 women so much! Harriet Tubman helped so many people to reach freedom, she had such a faith, such an intelligence, such a humanity... Amazing woman. And I strongly suggest you to read also Harriet Jacobs book, it's absolutely a must read if you love history ❤ Stitched on Old Salem linen 30 ct. The small one on 40 ct Olde New England linen by The Primitive Hare. SPECIAL THANKS TO MY MODEL STITCHER ELISABETTA.

BOREALIS FOX

BOREALIS FOX: This pattern's origins can be found in my last January trip to Lapland. When I visited Lapland I learnt a lot of legends about Aurora Borealis. One of them talks about Revontulet – the Finnish word for the Northern Lights – translates as “fox fires”. The firefox – tulikettu – is a mythical and elusive creature. As it runs along the fells, the fox’s flaming tail whips crystals of snow into the sky and the fur scratches the trees, setting the skies on fire. 

It has been very difficult to design the Aurora... the colours have been a nightmare LOL.. I lit an aurora candles bought in Rovaniemi... can you spot the blue(green flame? It's magical!!!! And this pattern has been patiently stitched by Elisabetta B. on Tempest 30 ct linen.

ARCTIC CIRCLE ORNAMENTS

Hello my dear Wicked Hares. I'm sooo late with these patterns, but, less than one, they are winter/historical patterns.... Let's start to introduce the most 'Christmas one'. 
It's my ARCTIC ORNAMENTS. It has been inspired by my trip to Santa's Village, in Rovaniemi, Finland, during last January. The Village is on the Arctic Circle. It was so strange to be there... Fantastic!!! And the village is full of elves and reindeers ❤ Cuteness at its best. 
The pattern can be stitched whole or in 3 ornaments. On Old Salem Linen 30 ct. Many thanks to my model stitcher Elisabetta B. and to my finisher Paola E.
