2nd Time Around: Vintage Cross Stitch




Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.


I’m always attracted to vintage cross stitch pictures when shopping estate sales, garage sales, etc. This one in this photo was really cheap…and even though I don’t have a chicken theme in my home, I bought it for one of my antique booths. I think I may actually have the book with the directions for this piece somewhere! I loved doing cross stitch at one time, and hopefully these vintage cross stitch pictures will one day be appreciated again! This one is still at the antique mall among other ‘chicken’ related items waiting for just the right person to come along! One thing I’ve learned through all this is that you never know what someone else will like, and just when you’ve about given up on something it sells, so even though it hasn’t sold yet, I still have hope that it will!


Thanks for stopping by, and I would love for you to link your 2nd Time Around post below.

So happy to be the 1st to link up! I love the cross stitch ... it's very cute. I also pick up any cross stitch or needlepoint I see in thrift stores. I think it's a shame they end up in the thrift store like a cast-off. But lucky for you and me to be able to rescue them!

Hi Diane, I too love needle work and especially cross stitch. The chicks are adorable. I have quite a collection of needlework with words. Most of them are related to laundry.

We did have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I am glad you did too. We watched Auburn win their game last week. They are a great team. We are pulling for Auburn to win the SEC championship. The Gators have had a tough year. Maybe next year.
Warm hugs, Jeanne

Diane, I just had the biggest laugh. Disregard the Auburn comment. I was reading another blog, Linda's at Coastal Charm and I thought I was still reading yours. Silly me. IT'S LATE I GUESS I BETTER GET SOME SLEEP !!! LOL.
Jeanne, again.

I'm not positive, but I believe I've done that pattern before... I used to collect chicken and egg things....and I think this was in the cabinet too.... so sweet!

I'm joining you today... What a fun meme.

Warm blessings,
