My Speckled Hen

I don't know if you remember, but a little while before Christmas, Lisa (daughter 1) gave me this cross stitch as a present:
I was thrilled with it, and thought she should have saved it and given it to me as a Christmas present. She showed me the design she had used, and on the page was a picture of a chicken who looked just like this:
I gazed in delight, and Lisa said she would make it for me, and promptly set to work. Last night Mr O produced this from out of his bag:

Isn't it lovely? And quite a likeness. I am most impressed. And considering she has a five year old son, a three year old and a four month old baby, I'm surprised she finds the time to do cross stitch at all! Thankyou Lisa, I am delighted with it.

  2. Anybody who can produce cross-stitch without losing her sight has my greatest admiration.

  3. She is very talented! Especially adding the fact she is juggling mommy duties while producing such beauties. She's my hero.;)

  4. We're thinking of having some chickens, so any simple info would be great - though I don't want them wandering into my kitchen, lol too much clutter as it is.

  5. Ooh! That's darling!

    Speckled Sussex are my favorite breed of chicken.
    How thoughtful of her!
