Cross Stitch Display part II...........

2 posts is one day..........
WOW is all I can say.............so many beautiful works from last weekends display.................thanks everyone for taking pics and sharing..........
If you missed it the links are in the last post and the girls have some wonderful work they shared.........
Now this one isn't my work...........Mr Chookyblue's Aunt stitched it for him for his 21st (I think)
it was the reason I did the cars in the last post..........they are framed similar and hang together..........



\

Now sad to say I have lots of UFO's - goodness knows who would have thought that I would have lots of UFO's..........be kind here Maree.........but here we go...
.....I haven't done work on any of these for at least 10 years if not more.......
....BUT...... 
I did pick this one up and do some stitching last Saturday............I was so inspired.........put about 40 stitches in one way and was heading back and realised I had the wrong colour thread..............DOH remember check symbols and numbers for correct colour............I was so annoyed and cranky with myself I nearly packed it all away BUT i pulled out all the stitches and got the CORRECT colour and re did what I had to pulled out and then did some more and I was so happy.............would have been cross stitching all week but had to get some secret sewing done.................oh and i have LOST misplaced my hoop and one cross stitch is MIA so think they are together.....got another hoop yesterday  
.....major search will be launched in school holidays to find them.........
These Australian natives I put together myself bits from here and there and I never knew what to do with them...........still don't...........any suggestions???????.....currently they live in a plastic sleeve in a folder...........
this is embroidery......think it was pre printed and may have to undo the daisys and restitch as can see the lines........will give it a wash and see what happens.......I love this one......soft and pretty.....on linen.......
This is supposed to be a doily set...........nearly finished but no idea what/how to do the finishing to make it into a doily...........2 this size and a bigger one.........
not much left on this Beatrix Potter one...............
can't even find the pattern to this one........
BUT you will be pleased to know I will have a UFO finished..........need to stitch my initials on and I got a frame while shopping yesterday so hopefully by next weekend I will have it framed.............and I can show you on the blog...............now for the list..........
here are the other girls............lots from last week and a few new girls and I know they are ahead of me and have lots of posts up already........but some are on the other side of the world and  it is still Friday......
.......a few embroidery, tapestry etc too.........
a nice cross stitch here

  2. Hi Chooky. I have enjoyed looking at the cross stitches. I went through a 10 year stage and still love the ones on my wall. I also have lots of patterns that I had hoped to stitch so I hope the bug bites again. Stitcheries have definitely taken over!

  4. Cardy doesn't have wips because she gives them to her mothers craft group to finish and give away!! ;) (I think!) Good job! That's not too many wips for 20 years or so! Love the doilies. Glad you didn't put it down... the wrong colour thread cross stitch! KEEP GOING CHOOKY!

  5. OMG! Are we supposed to show UFOs aswell? LOL I have a few.
    I have to admit to taking more than one break from cross stitch and also to having itchy fingers this last week, but I've been busy with secret Christmas knitting.
    I love your flowers chooky.
