.......chickens that is!! Although technically I'm sure my chickens should be classed as male as they have cockcombs - oh well.
The chicken doorstop pictured is a commission that I received from the lovely lady who runs Natty Netty as she has just opened her B and M store. Now I 'know' Natty Netty as she is a fellow moderator on the Crafts Forum and I had to send her a matching pincushion/paperweight too. The fabric came from a vintage pillowcase (I think I bought it at a charity shop) and was a dream to sew - just the right weight and my sewing machine loved it. And the best bit is is that it is loved by it's new owner!
