    with her legs crossed/ crossing?

    Hi everyone!

    A) She was sitting with her legs crossed.
    B) She was sitting with her legs crossing.

    A)She was staring at me with her arms folded.
    B) She was staring at me with her arms folding.


    My grammar books says in each pair A) is correct and B) is wrong.

    Is it true? Is B) totally wrong?

    I'd appreciate your replies.
