Anne of Green Gables Release & Winners Announced!
GIVEAWAY WINNERS ANNOUNCED + Special Promo Code!
Being a true Canadian girl, PEI and the Green Gables house is on my bucket list. My hubby and I plan to take a road-trip out east with the kids to visit this iconic house and soak in all PEI has to offer. To say I'm giddy with excitement would be an understatement! We're aiming to go next year, but if you have any recommendations on stops along the way (we're coming from Ontario), or must sees in PEI, leave a comment below!
After reading everyone's comments, I was truly blown away. Not only did I recognize nearly every book mentioned, but I swept back to my childhood, and an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia washed over me. Growing up, we moved... a lot... and I would get lost in books as they were the only familiar setting I could surround myself in. I loved getting lost in the town of Avonlea, and envisioned the quaint farm of Green Gables as my home away from home. Gilbert was one of my first "book boyfriend" crushes, and I related to Anne. Not just from an outsiders perspective, being the new girl in town, but as a free spirit that never quite fit the mold of a well-mannered "proper" girl. For the longest time, I had no idea that Anne of Green Gables touched as many as it did me, so when I was hit with the idea to create her in crochet form, I put aside every wip I had going on (and I have MANY), and started work on her right away. I was even more thrilled to find out so many of you share the same love and adoration for this classic tale, and I couldn't wait to share her pattern with you all!
