Churn, Butter, Churn


I am excited to show you my first cross stitch design for 2018. It's called Churn, Butter, Churn and was inspired by an old churning rhyme that women used to sing while churning butter:

                   Churn, butter, churn
                   Come, butter, come.
                   A little bit of butter
                   Is better than none.

I think my Grandmother must have sung something like this as she grew up in a humble log cabin in the Ozarks of Missouri. I know she churned lots and lots of butter, too!!!

The pattern for Churn, Butter, Churn is now available in my Etsy shop. Thanks so much for looking...enjoy this beautiful Sunday afternoon!!!

Happy stitching,
Sandy

Sandy, I love making butter, but I’m so happy I don’t have to churn it. Butter churns are beautiful, just like your new design. Judy
