Illustration Friday - Stitch


.... Meet Stitch McGillicutty!

Stitch lives in a small, beautifully decorated burrow nestled in the side of Moss Mountain - somewhere in the Northwest. Stitch comes from a long line of magical Stitchers. Over the years, both hands have evolved to actual scissors and needles. As a group they stitch at an unreal speed, creating the most beautiful pieces and all you hear is a slight hum and tinkering of metal.

They are extremely shy and will only chat you up if you keep them intrigued by talking of sewing, knitting, or surgery. In the time that I illustrated this photo, Stitch created 9 striped scarves, 4 pretty plushies, 2 oversized overalls, and 1 blue bonnet for blue bird. What a treat!

Thanks for visiting. I look forward to reading your comments.
