Last summer after I had back surgery, I spent several weeks in a recliner. I read a lot of books, did a ton of crossword puzzles, and I also started a cross stitch. As I searched Etsy for patterns, I happened upon this one of a fox girl. My sister, Lindsey, just happens to be marginally obsessed with foxes, and, well, she is a girl, so I thought she might like it.
I changed the colors a bit to suit my own taste, and gave the girl black hair, to match Lindsey’s.
I finished stitching months ago, but I have been fruitlessly searching for the perfect frame. I had something specific in mind, and of course couldn’t find it anywhere. Finally last week I decided that it was time to just get it done and give to her. It ended in a simple black frame with a red mat, to match her shoes.
Here is another fox gift I gave to Lindsey for her birthday a few years back.
