Happy Tuesday and welcome, dear friends. Are you ready for a little chicken stitching? Well guess who is here? Annie and her gals, Edna, Alma and Dorothy Mae!
|This piece finished on foam board with 2 layers of batting.|
If you have been following me for awhile, then you will recognize the ladies, but just in case you do not know her, Annie is one hard working woman!
She is always busy, and her favorite hens are always right along with her. Edna, Alma and Dorothy Mae are sisters. To be honest Edna is always the fiesty one. Dorothy Mae is a little more on the serious side ,but she is always up for a good adventure. What about , Alma you ask? She is the baby sister so she is a little spoiled. Annie and the hens have been in a number of my stitches. Annie has done everything from tending bees, picking pumpkins, sledding in the snow and gathering hearts and blooms. Well it is springtime on the farm ; Edna, Alma and Dorothy Mae are nesting. Bunnies are hopping all around as Annie gathers eggs. Hmmm I wonder if she will use those eggs for baking or for Easter dyeing. She has a lot of eggs maybe both.
This is a small measuring 54 x51. I stitched mine on 14 count tea dyed aida . That brought the measurement to 3 7/8" x 3 5/8" . All of the "Annie" stitches measure about the same because I am putting them on this box that I got at the Goodwill.
I think all of these would so cute as pillows in a basket or dough bowl though. I used DMC floss that I had on hand; there are only 10 colors , but you could lessen it by using 1 brown.

If you would like to stitch Annie and the crew, just click on the pdfs below. I am not a professional designer nor do I have professional software so each page is on its own pdf download. I haven't figured out how to condense it to one yet.

I took some time today to redo the embellishment for my " Farm Sweet Farm " stitch which was a freebie.
I stitched this last year and had a bow and greenery on it to go with my Barnyard Christmas series.
I had very few resources to work with today, but found some ribbon and some floral bits and added a little spring/summer vibe to it. It is finished on a Dollar Tree chalkboard. One sweet stitcher stitched this up in John Deere colors. It was so cute.
Thank you so much for visiting. I know Annie is planning to come back for a visit in the near future. It would be a delight if you would come see her and the gals when they return. And it is always a pleasure when you visit me. Have a lovely day and may it be filled with lots of love, joy and stitching and as always...
Happy stitching, ya'll
