pattern: crowded peas
Today would be Shel Silverstein's 82nd birthday, and growing up, he was always a favorite of mine. There are still a few of his poems that I can recite from memory! When I saw that it was his birthday, I remembered a post that I shared here a while back. Seven years ago!
The illustration above was created in response to the word "crowded." It reminded me of Shel's poem "Crowded Tub" (it's a silly one, I still love it!), which I then used to create crowded peas. Some time after that, I used the illustration for some embroidery, which I no longer have...I don't even have a photo of it!
But I have now created a PDF of the pattern so you can stitch it...and send me a photo or add it to the Flickr group!
