awhile back, i’d posted that my crafting/children’s librarian/bloggy friend, small fox had invited me to be part of an “art exchange.” i’m pretty sure that the chain ended with me (i can’t really blame anyone for not signing up — i don’t do them myself 99.2% of the time) and so i decided that at least i could create a little piece of art to share with small fox directly. and the moment i had that idea, this little reading fox idea popped into my head. granted, it went through quite a few sketch variations (hmmmm… does rossie’s process pledge extend to non-quilt projects too? would you like to see the rough drafts of this?) before it turned into this, but in the end i was sooo pleased with the results. small fox told me that she loved it so much that she showed it to everyone who came to her house for a visit, which just makes me even happier. i love it when tiny inspiration strikes!
