A part of the tapestry is missing deteriorated over time. The last section presumably shows William’s coronation on Christmas 1066 CE. The Bayeux Tapestry currently resides in the Museum of the Tapestry of Bayeux, located in Bayeux, a small rural community of Normandy, France. Modern historians believe Bishop Odo of Bayeux, Earl of Kent, and half-brother to King William I of England commissioned this work. The Tapestry is thought to have been crafted by a group of skilled seamstresses and sewn sometime during the 1070’s (Sayre, 2011).
Thumbelina was written and published by Hans Christian Anderson in 1835. Over time, the story of Thumbelina has evolved. In earlier stories the main character had many different names, including “Little Totty” or “Little Ellie,” and the name Thumbelina was not used until 1864 by H. W. Dulckin when the story was translated into English (Wullschlager). The same brief summary of the history of Thumbelina, written by Wullschlager, also says that the story of Tom Thumb may have inspired the story of Thumbelina. This summary also included details about the use of animals in children’s literature.

Some believe that it originated in Arabia and spread eastward to Tibet and then westward to Spain, finally following the Arab trade routes to other Mediterranean countries. Alternatively, it's thought to have originated in South America, where a primitive tribe used crochet adornments in puberty rites. Another alternative stems from the fact that in China, early examples were known of dolls worked in crochet. However, there is no solid evidence as to how old crochet is or where it originated.

Of all the films made depicting this heroic daughter of an Indian chief, I chose the 1995 Disney version, self entitled Pocahontas. Disney released this movie world wide in 1995 and then re-released in the United States on May 3, 2005. The movie takes place in 1607 in England with the boarding of the Virginia Company with the “new world”, North America, in their sites. Aside from the brief scene in England and their sail over, the rest of the movie takes place in Virginia, home to Pocahontas. I was 11 years old when this movie came out and I still remember singing along to the catchy songs, laughing at the rambunctious raccoon, and wishing I could talk to trees.
