G - Disney Alphabet Cross Stitch
Before I get started today, I need to make a small mention about my sadness over the death of Mickey Rooney. One of my favorite Disney movies of all time is Pete's Dragon (yeah, I know, I have a lot, but this one really is one of the top five). It's probably really the only Mickey Rooney movie I've ever seen. It's not a popular Disney film, in fact, I know very few people who have ever seen it (which is really sad), but I really associated with this movie as a kid and those songs are as ingrained in my heritage as much as the most popular of Disney songs. So rest in peace Mickey, you will be missed!
Now, back to business...
Let's get the admin out of the way first. Here are the new images of the corrected characters already completed from A to E:
And Flynn is the same as yesterday, so now we're ready for today and row 2.
My "G" choice on my chart from CloudsFactory is my second and only other member of the "fab five". It wasn't easy leaving out Mickey, but there is a much more important "M" to me (and I had a real problem with "M" because there were a lot of choices that were important to me). But we're still not there yet. My "G" pick used to be my sister's favorite Disney character. She grew out of him, but he still holds a special place in my heart for this very reason. One of my favorite pictures from Disney World is this one (although not the best quality picture...it was 2004 and it's extremely cropped because we were pretty far back):
And this is how I always think of me and Amber.
So I guess it's no secret that "G" is for Goofy:
