s-leary:

Now that she’s received it, I can post the finished BB-8 cross stitch I made for @bomberqueen17! I started with the excellent Rollin’ with my Homies cross stitch pattern and substituted a verse from the lullaby Poe writes for BB-8 in her Home Out In the Wind series.

A huge part of the plot revolves around BB-8’s unusual intelligence, adaptability, and loyalty. Poe treated B more like a child than a droid, correcting misconceptions instead of wiping memory. As a result, BB-8 loves Poe like a parent. And, it turns out, a lot of other droids know the song, too. Like, a lot.

I had a great time stitching this, and my son had a great time watching and checking up on my progress. “You finished BB-8′s head! Good job, Mommy! Read it to me again!”
