Cross stitch pattern of the tavern sign from Tangled that hangs at the entrance to The Snuggly Duckling. I was going for a rustic watercolor vibe with lots of backstitching. This one is just for my patrons so head over to my Patreon to download the PDF and PNG files.

My Patron, Robin the Bun, is an enormous rabbit living in the Alps. They are currently shedding their winter coat and the whole town is covered in errant fluffs drifting on the wind. Robin’s fur is infamous for being ultra warm and waterproof so it’s common for people to collect it off trees and buildings to make clothes for next winter.
I watched a video the other day about how you should always skip the first five minutes of Tangled, and I’m inclined to agree. Skipping the backstory lets you unravel the mystery along with Rapunzel and helps you to connect with the character. It also make the twist at the end land better because, if you haven’t seen the prologue, you’re not completely certain about Mother Gothel’s intentions.
If you’ve never seen Tangled, then I definitely suggest giving it a try. If you’re watching on Disney Plus, skip to 5:10. If not, then you’ll want to start at the scene where Pascal and Rapunzel are playing hide and seek that leads into the first song: When Will My Life Begin.
If you’re watching this with kids, the movie is a perfect opportunity to introduce them to the concepts of gaslighting and emotional manipulation. You can talk about Narcissistic Personality Disorder and how to identify emotional abuse especially in people who are close to you. They can learn along with Rapunzel about setting boundaries and forming a healthy support system away from an abuser. I’m so glad this movie exists so that more young people can learn these concepts.
