littlez in the Netherlands yesterday: another Little Red Riding Hood from the fairy tale ornament swap! Apparently this is a popular theme here on the blog this week. This ornament is also sewn of wool felt, made with beautiful stitching and beadwork. I really like the child-like curiosity of this piece, and it's always interesting to see how different people interpret the same theme.
My partner also sent along a couple of cards she designed, based on a couple of European fairy tales I hadn't read: Soljev and the Dragon and Brother and Sister. Again, one of the pleasures of swapping in a group like ours is finding new things to read. The packet she sent was also covered in cool Dutch stamps as well--very colorful and fun.
