Completed x-stitch samplers

I’ve completed the Mary Poppins SAL designed by Ralina. It is now framed and hiding in hubby’s study, as it will be my “home made” Christmas gift for my daughter this year. Read here and here about our family "homemade" Christmas gifts.

I’ve also completed the Ten Virgin’s x-stitch by Gigi. It was stitched one thread over one thread. It's very fine and a bit difficult to run the finishing thread through stitches on the back to snip off.

The first photo is of the back:

The second photo is of the front. I have the frame, my sister-in-law is cutting the cardboard mat for me, then the project will be ready to hang up.

Chicken Doll??!!
What’s a young chicken and a teenage chicken to do, when the daughter of the house treats you like a doll?

Just sit there looking pretty!!


  1. Oh my gosh!!! What a blast!

  2. Loved seeing your stitching done. They look fabulous! Too funny that the chickens let your daughter play with them like dolls!

    Hugs from Holland ~

  3. I grew up with chickens but never thought of using them for dolls. So funny..and cute.

  4. I did the same when i was a little girl!!!
