New Stitching

Oh no, I’ve been talked into starting another piece. It doesn’t take much, does it? And, again, all of it comes from stash!

A little chicken

A little rooster

This is my progress on Little House Needlework’s My Needle’s Work. I’m stitching it on hand-dyed linen from Enchanting Lair, in the colourway Heritage.

I have to admit, I get a big chuckle out of the rooster. I mean, don’t we spend a lot of time telling people we don’t cross stitch things like ladies wearing doilies and ducks on their heads? And yet, here is a design showing a girl stitching a rooster. Still, it is cute, and I have been meaning to stitch it for ages. I’m also toying with the idea of changing the colour of her dress. We shall have to see how that works out.

    Great new start.

  3. You’ve made a great start with this. I do like the hand-dyed fabric – it looks very ‘vintage’.

    I like this design, I’ve seen it a couple of time recently. It just occured to me one easy way to make it into a “Subversive Stitch”, just call it Girl Holding a ****” LOL

    Maybe you’d better not, you don’t want to appear on weird Google Search results, which is why I have censored my own post!!
