1869 Spring Chick Crock - A Spring Freebie

 Well, it is the last Saturday of March. Boy, has the month flown by. So what have I been all into these last couple of weeks?  Chicks!🐥🐤 Oh, they are just so stinking cute!!! Mr. Pinker went down to the local Co Op, and the chicks are in! We are debating on whether to get a few to raise.  We have had them in the past, and we really enjoyed the eggs once they started laying.  We will just have to see though. 

 Yesterday I posted my Spring Chicks Quilt that I finished this week. It was such a delight to work on.  


I have also been working on these Spring Chicks embroidery doodles,but I will share that in another post. Click here to go to the post with the Spring Chicks freebie doodles. 


Thursday night I decided I needed a cross stitch to go with my Spring Chicks quilt  so I drew up 1869 Spring Chick Crock. 

 A big fat chick rests in a little crock as smaller chicks run around at the bottom.

  I stitched it up in just a few hours.  It is a small measuring only 42 x 40 about the same size of the other 1869 crock stitches. Have you seen them? They are the  Fall 1869 Crock and Ewe Have My Heart 1869 Crock.



 

This stitch only has 8 DMC floss colors including blanc, black, 3825, 721, 931, 3346, 972, 3712.

I finished mine on a thrifted piece that I think is a square candle holder or maybe it is a piece to hold post its. I am not sure, but it was the perfect size for this stitch  

 If you would like to stitch, this piece just click on the pdfs below. I am not a professional designer, and I am not able to  put these on one pdf. I apologize for that.  Click here for the instruction page.

I sure do appreciate you visiting me today and seeing my chick crock. Please come back for a visit anytime; you know how much I love visitors. Have a very lovely day and as always...

Happy stitching, ya'll

Melisa

Friends are the sunshine of life. 

Hugs and stitches,

I feel like I have been blessed by all of the sweet stitchers like yourself who visit me. I feel like I am not stitching alone as much- noone in my family is remotely interested in stitching Lol , but that's ok. Have a wonderful week and happy stitching.
