The third piece I had framed is to go in an embroidery exhibition later this year and after that will hang on my wall - yes I have to confess that I don't give away all my needlework although there is a fair amount spread among friends and relatives around the world. I took a close up shot too that shows the dandelion tufts which denote the hours. Installing the clock mechanism was a challenge for the framer but she was delighted with the result - as am I!

An update on the green chicken and the final piece of framing.
The green Quaker Chicken Pin Cushion is coming along. The Needle Necessities thread makes this an interesting stitch and yesterday I got the beads for the comb and the waddle as I intend to finish this over the coming long weekend. This chicken is making a journey to an as yet unsuspecting friend and the chicken coop - oops box! - is all prepared and the local supermarket has provided some chocolate eggs to accompany this unusual chook!
