Cross Stitch Display.

I would like to thank Chookyblue for inviting us to display our cross stitches today.
When I decided to join in I did not realise how difficult it is to photograph framed stitcheries.
Here is the result and sorry if they are a bit blurry.

My “Chooks”
I have two more waiting to be done.


                                Spent many hours stitching
          017       before I started quilting
018                After looking at all the beautiful work on all the ladies blogs I would like to do some more. If I have the time.

This is the first one I stitched.
It is my favourite as it reminds me of my DD1 013
when she was that small.



                                Busy mice that hang on my sewing room door.

Thank you Chooky. I have enjoyed participating in this tour and it is fun blog hopping to see all the lovely work.

  1. I love counted cross stitch. But I can't see to do the stitches anymore, and my fingers don't always want to work the same way.

    Your work is beautiful!

  5. Very nice stitching! I used to do a lot of cross stitching before I discovered scrapbooking. But then I found quilting and I forgot all about scrapbooking. Now I'm starting to do some cross stitching again.

  6. Gorgeous! It's lovely to see peoples creations too. Maybe we should all join and do a small cross stitch swap or something? Or a pattern swap? I LOVE the one with the little girl on the beach :)

  15. They are all so beautiful. What a great job you did. Several years ago I did a few, but now my eyes are too bad. That is what comes with age for some of us.
