Description

Beatrix Potter had a lifetime fascination with rhymes. After the release of her 1902 book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, she created a small collection of illustrations and rhymes, and eventually, in 1917, her nursery rhyme concept book was published and called Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes. This delightful adaptation for the crewel enthusiast by Erica Wilson is from the Old Woman and the Shoe Illustrations. Be sure to see the other earlier pieces in this series!
 
 
 
 
YOU know the old woman
 who lived in a shoe?
And had so many children
 She didn't know what to do?

............................
Erica Wilson's Delightful Grandma Mouse sits and Knits, just as she does in the Appley Dapply Stanza below: 
 
I THINK if she lived in
 a little shoe-house—
That little old woman was
 surely a mouse!
