In 1973, Pat Carson and Gloria Steele began Gloria & Pat Originals. Two years later, they changed their name to Designs by Gloria & Pat, Inc. and have been a leader in publishing cross stitch books for 35 years.
Here we have a sweet design of a poultry family. Clearly the farmer has been by with their food. Momma Hen and Baby Chicks are greedily pecking away at their repast while Poppa Rooster stands watch over them. Or perhaps he’s eyeing up a new addition that has joined his harem. What a dog.
I had actually planned to add two other similar designs to this one to form a tableau. Unfortunately, I got distracted and this project got sidelined.
