Cross Stitch Design African Lion and A Tribute To The Earl of Baltimore

Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. This past weekend there was some sad news coming out of Baltimore. One of the truly great managers in baseball and especially a great manager of the Baltimore Orioles died on Saturday. His name was Earl Weaver. Earl Weaver's nickname was the "Earl of Baltimore". He was like royalty, he ran the Orioles like he was the king, and he won a lot of baseball games for the Orioles. He was loved by his fans, respected by his peers, and hated by the umpires. Earl Weaver was special to many who followed baseball and the Orioles in the late 60's, 70's and early 80's. That is exactly the time we followed the Orioles.

We wanted to give Earl Weaver a little tribute on this blog. So we contacted the digital vaults at abullrun to see how best to do that. It gave us the Cross Stitch design "African Lion". It makes perfect sense. This lion is reagal in every way as was Earl Weaver. The lion is a magnificent animal that appears as a symbol of power, courage and nobility on family crests, coats of arms and national flags. That was Earl Weaver except we are pretty sure he does not appear on any national flags, but we bet he is on some family crests and coat of arms.

Of course today's featured cross stitch design is named African Lion. This cross stitch design is more that just a tribute to Earl Weaver. This design is about the beauty of this animal, it's courage and nobility.  A perfect cross stitch design to be featured in any room in the house. The finished size of this regal design is 18" x 10" (46 x 25 cm).

The Cross Stitch Kit African Lion is from Dimensions and designed by Donald Grant. The kit includes cotton embroidery thread, 18 count ivory Aida fabric, thread palette, needle, easy instructions, and easy-to-read multicolor chart. As with all kits at this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.
