SLOW STITCHING SUNDAY

So far I am right on schedule for my
Sunday stitching in counted cross stitch--
this is about half done now--
this block reminds me of New York and here!!
I love ducks--

and remember last Sunday I finished the first block-
I forgot to tell you why I love this block-
You see I grew up on a farm out in the country--and Dad owned over 200 acres--
when I was a teenager, me and my cousin, Petey and my boyfriend, Jim used to ride  around in the fields in an old car and hunt for red fox--the hunter would ride on the hood of the car and we would take turns driving--we had alot of fun running around in those fields--and I promise you that NO red foxes or any creature was ever killed or shot at during these times--just fun memories--
things we did to entertain ourselves when we rarely even had TV let alone any video games back then!!!

love and laughter, di

  1. I don't think I would ever succeed at cross stitch but I admire the work of those who can. You ducks and fox look great!

    When we hear or read the work "hunt" the word or image of a gun usually comes to mind with it. It sounds like no guns were involved in your hunting. I can imagine the fun of riding on the hood of a car. Lucky you to have grown up on a farm!
