In 1997 one of my close friends Lisa, had her first child. She decorated the nursery in Noah's Ark. I wanted to find the perfect Noah's Ark project to stitch for the baby. When I visited her in the hospital after her son was born I brought a small stitched gift until the huge one was finished.
This is the huge Noah's Ark project that I stitched for her nursery. It was in one of the Cross Stitch & Country Craft magazines.
I stitched this Dragon Dreams version in 2011 when she turned 50. I have always wanted to stitch this piece because I love fantasy creatures and Lisa loves Noah's Ark, so I thought this was the perfect gift from me. She was so surprised when I gave it to her, she didn't expect another Noah's Ark cross stitch.
