I'm extremely in love with Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. When I was the age of Sam and Suzy I would dream of living alone in the woods, I would very often pack bags full of non essential items. Stuffed toys, books, notebooks and pens.. all very important at the time! Possibly my toothbrush and a pair of underwear if I was feeling very practical! Just like Suzy, my cat would be along for the ride too. Ready for my big adventure.. I would only ever make it to the back garden! When I watch this film, I go straight back to how I felt at that time! Dreaming of a big adventure, that naive thinking that I only needed my colouring pens and my cat to live my life and be happy. Its nice to escape back to that mindset every so often.
I thought their unique style and all their cute accessories would work so well in a cross stitch and how right I was! Most definitely one of my favourite cross stitches I've ever done.
