Just a few cross-stitches I've done for the 'show and tell' arranged by Chookyblue chookyblue.blogspot.com . The kitchen scene is the first major design I did probably about 25 years ago. It still hangs in my kitchen today. The plaid teddy has a special place in my heart even though my daughter didn't want it in her room anymore once she'd grown up. I used to stitch this at night after my daughter (who was a toddler) went to bed. I was a single parent and it was just a lovely release and 'my time'. Shaun Sheep is for a Christmas present for one of the girls at work who is into sheep. Have done lots more that have been given away and lots of UFO's. Safety in numbers - it is so funny that so many people never quite finish them, I feel better now, I'm not alone!
