Found these designs in the Hoop Love group on Flickr and couldn't resist stitching them.   There are more, but here are the first two.  They are both done with two strands.  I did the hen in backstitch and the rooster in stem stitch.  I really enjoy doing monochromatic pieces, but playing around with the stitches I use to give some texture to the piece.

This one of them dancing was the first one I stitched.  I am not happy with the rooster's eye or the music notes, but not unhappy enough with them to rip them out and re-do them.  I have decided that from now on I will stitch eyes separately with their own thread, so that if I decide to rip them out it'll be easy to do.  These napkins are just for household use and not a gift, so I decided to live with the imperfections.
