Forest Fables

As a people, we've enjoyed a long love affair with anthropomorphizing animals, and one of the most enduring and universally beloved oral and written tradition is the fable. Parents love them for the morals they can instill while the children simply delight in hearing their parents do all the silly voices. I can still hear the cadence and rhythm of my father's bedside voice as he read the tales to me and my three sisters. In our newest in house collection, I've put together a mash up of two of my favorite Forest Fables, the Three Billy Goats Gruff and Chicken Little. The result is a folksy collection with storied elements as well as influences from embroidery and European papercut designs. Sly Foxy Loxy is sure to make his way into many hearts, as are those Gruff Billy Goats (there's a distinct shortage of goats on fabric I intended to remedy that!) But the Fabled Text will hold a special place in my memory. Together, my daughter and I wrote our own versions of the two folk tales. I'm looking forward to coming full circle and sewing up a new pillow case for her with the fabric!
