The Spellings and Stitching of Crosses
When a Cross stitches a cross
It is now a Cross’s cross.
If two Crosses stitch one cross
It is now The Crosses’ cross.
When two Crosses stitch more crosses
Now they are The Crosses’ crosses.
If two Crosses have a spat…
Cross Crosses! And that is that.
No worries as they make up
And stitch happily Cross forever.

Cross stitch! just makes me cross!!! Ooooh that’s six words! off to find a photo. Thanks Maureen & JB
Gorgeous! I used to cross stitch a lot!
Now I want to cross stitch again! Love the cross jingle and the needlework.
I had to giggle at what Miriam said 🙂 I have never done cross stitching. I think it’s beautiful and admire those that do it. Have a lovely weekend, my friend!
oohhhh back in he day, when the fingers worked better, this my craft of choice!! it’s beautiful, did you make it??
This reminds me to get some beginner cross stitch kits for my girls for Christmas…maybe they’ll enjoy this craft as much as I did when I was their age!
I never did learn this art but it’s lovely. Fun little poem.

Can you believe that I used to stitch? A long, long time ago. And enjoyed it, too. I actually still have a tablecloth to prove it 🙂
Beautiful, words and picture.
Oh how delightful wordplay … I was twisting my tongue trying to repeat it!
Cross stitching is relaxing (if one does it in my level – very simple 🙂 – I have one hanging on our hall way – a sweet and old one, from 1963 (as my husband was born).
Wishing you a great week ahead, Maureen!
very fun word play. And, yes my favourite craft once too. I hope the polar vortex was kind, we have continued to be mild, but the frost is on it’s way this week, and I shall start getting cross when I have to argue with my son to get him to wear his coat for school. Have a good week.
