I am still working on the “12 Days of Christmas” cross-stitch pattern by Satsuma Street. I am nearly finished with the French hen. Once I finish this square, I will probably put it aside for a bit again and return to my Julian of Norwich “All Shall Be Well” cross-stitch project.
First, I finished the two turtle doves block:
Then I made a start on the 3 French hens square. In the pattern, however, there is only one hen. I started with his head and stitched his beret first. Of course the French hen is wearing a beret. :)
Then I started working my way down the hen, switching colors as I went:
I spent a good amount of time stitching over the Easter break, but I didn’t take progress photos as I went. This is what the hen looks like now:
Close to another mini-finish! Just need to stitch his feet and finish the two flowers, plus a couple other details such as his eye.
In other news, I am finishing a new cross-stitch pattern for my Etsy shop. I can’t wait to share a preview! Stay tuned!
