CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Kateryna - Stitchy Princess
Mother hen is looking a bit cross, isn't she?
It seems like the chicks have been up to no good and she is scolding them. They both look contrite, the elder daughter wearing a red polka dot scraft, and little brother standing behind.
No doubt though mother's sunny mood will soon return.
Mother hen is wearing a traditional ukraininan folk blouse with an embroidered motif on the sleeve, as well as a kitchen apron. The log cabin house stands in the background.
The layout of the cross stitch design is quite charming. The central scene is framed on the sides by two tall sunflowers attracting butterflies. The lower part features a cross stitch border motif with broody hens hatching eggs and hens and chicks pecking. Finally in the top part, the sun shines among the stylised clouds.
The pattern was stitched on Permin star saphire linen (very light blue), but the designer suggest you can also use any light Green, Blue, Cream, Beige, or Gray fabric of your choice.
