Cross Stitch Loves.

  Chookyblue put out the challenge of having a
Cross Stitch Display and here is mine to show you.
 I made this myself many many years ago. 
It is a favorite of mine.
A mother chook with her chick and basket of eggs.
 I had it framed professionally and glad I did.
 It sits on my dresser now, but used to be on my kitchen wall.
I have done a few cross stitches over the years
 and given most of them away as gifts.
It's very therapeutic sitting cross stitching,
very much like quilting. 
I just seem to have more time for quilting lately.

Want to see more ladies
displaying there Cross Stitches. 
Chookyblue has a list on her blog.

  Have a wonderful weekend.
 I am off to a wedding in a few hours.
 My no 2 Son's getting married today.

 Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs
