Dream Blocks Cross Stitch Pattern
Jessie Willcox Smith

This advanced fine-art cross stitch design, Dream Blocks, was created by Jessie Willcox Smith in 1908. Smith was a prolific illustrator of children in their various activities. Although she never married or had children of her own, she loved them. She had a home and studio of her own built and surrounded it with beautiful gardens for her young models to play in. She used the children of her friends and acquaintances as models in her illustrations. Dream Blocks appeared as No. 7 in “Elizabeth Allen Ashton An Old Fashioned 123 Book.” - “I stacked my blocks up to the sky, all but seven fell to the floor. Perhaps the sky rises too high? Perhaps I’ll try once more.” Dream Blocks recently sold at a Sotheby's auction for $122,500.
