Caterpillar Find finished

Caterpillar Find 2013

Alexander At Play Series, 7" by 7"

I just mounted and hung Caterpillar Find.  I think it is my very favorite thing I have ever made.  Maybe it is because I love the photo so much.  I don't know.  It just strikes my soul strings to see my son peering up with the little caterpillar in his hand.

Finished piece is 7" by 7" hooked with scraps.  Took two sittings to complete.  I mounted it on gallery wrapped canvas backing, and it is hanging as the third in the series: Alexander At Play.

I hooked yesterday evening on Caterpillar Find.  Love how it is turning out.  I think it is sweet.  And it really captures the feeling of the photo.  Want to get the background hooked this weekend.

The photo was taken two years ago - Alexander was 7.  We were out in Brenham on our annual Bluebonnet excursion in late March.  We were in Baylor University State Park taking pictures of the not-so-great Bluebonnets that year.  As Alexander was playing in the field, he came across a caterpillar, and was so delighted.  He raised it up in his hand to show us his find.

It is one of my favorite pictures of my son.
