Of course I remember a lot of fun and great times, but there were those times when my parents had a lot of whining kids on their hands. What I remember about those moments was my Dad's favorite saying "Quit your belly aching."
When I was around sixteen I found the saying written, kwitchyerbellyakin and decided to make it for my Dad in a wall hanging. I'm not sure if this was a printed cross stitch or if I did a counted cross stitch. He loved it!! It hung in their kitchen and would create some interesting conversation to say the least. Most could not make out the word, but when they did, would just laugh.
I have made several of these little wall hangings now and sent them to my brothers and sisters and my own kids have them hanging in their homes. Just thought I would share with you.
This is the one that hangs in my kitchen. The word kwitchyerbellyakin was done on my embroidery machine and piece with batiks.
This was the original one I made for my Dad. Remember our parents were into avocado green and gold.
Just a great little conversation piece!!
