As a girl who loves the color red, I can't help but be partial to a fairy tale that sports the color in the title. I guess I'll go ahead and confess that I always wanted a red hooded cape, and of course, a basket full of goodies wouldn't get turned down around here either. I'd even share them with Grandma...... oh wait, I am Grandma! Anyway, what I'm trying to tell you is I liked the story of Little Red, it has just enough scary in it to be fun, and it's so outlandish even a child couldn't really be scared for long. I mean who would really believe that an old hairy wolf was Grandma? Grandpa maybe, but surely not Grandma!
I've been working on a piece of embroidery from the story. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it when I finish it. I might put it on an apron, or maybe make a pocket for a book bag, or use it for the focal piece of a quilt. Either way, I'd love to pair it with some of Aneela Hoey's A Walk in the Woods fabric.
I'm afraid my Little Red looks a little older than the character from the story, but I still kind of like it. Do you think this may be some sort of Freudian slip that has to do with me still wanting that cape?
