Thank you to plucky head cheerleader
and of course
I've been wanting to make a table runner for some time now. I took a simple and free pattern, and combined my love of chicken fabric, gingham fabric and added a couple of fun yo yos to create...
In the works are also some hexagon placemats using Debby Kratovil's awesome Twisted Hexagon Blocks pattern and spiderweb template ruler. Thank you Debby for coming to my rescue while I tried to work out this pattern. Once I stopped being such a Nervous Nellie...it got easier to "see" what I was supposed to do!
And the most awesome, new to me project, is a set of red gingham curtains in my dining room. They have been sitting there very quietly since last Christmas when I sewed them up. I now have to come clean, I have been "chicken scratching". No, not scratching chickens...though Wilma Wishbone sure loves a good belly rub LOL but rather, a form of embroidery on gingham called Chicken Scratch embroidery...aka Depression or Amish lace. This is something I have been wanting to do for some time, and have finally begun. I have to admit I absolutely love doing this form of embroidery! And I cannot wait to finish this project so I can begin another. I would love to get some of these books as well...just look at the gorgeous rooster!
The curtain on the right shows what the curtain looked like before I started embroidering, and the left is my progress.
I got the pattern from here. I would love to try the double colour on something...perhaps I have some aprons to make up...a lady can never have too many aprons LOL
Ok, enough about me...time to move on the next hens on the list...

Go forth and spread some fowl love!
