Cars for Jake

I ordered this canvas two years ago from Amy for Jake. I was so caught up in other stitching that I never got to it. Jake is going to be turning two in March and I decided it was time that Nana stitched this for her little man before he got to big. Jake is going to be getting a big boy bed and his room will now have a car theme. This canvas is going to be perfect for his room.
I will be dividing my time between the Christmas Banner and the Cars canvas. This canvas is by Alice Peterson and I got the stitch guide and threads from Amy. Amy did a magnificent stitch guide for it and this is going to be a fun stitch. I have to call Amy's to get a thread I am missing for the sky and more of the thread for the
Road. Amy suggested having a continuous run of ZOOM in the red border.
I saw so many canvases that I liked but so far have only ordered the Perfume Bottles from Amy. I love the eat love stitch canvas by &More along with Sew Much Fun's three dimensional Rose Pillow and Painted Pony's Halloween and Christmas Dress for Success. So many canvases and so little time to stitch it all.

Linda, that is just precious and I know he will love it when it is hanging in his "big boy" room.
