That coop started out on my uncle's farm. They weren't using it anymore so my dad disassembled it and put it back together on our place. Seems we grew beyond the dog house.
Evidently, chickens have made their way into my sewing room as well. Here is a pin keeper that I made. She's made from repro civil war fabrics. Her nesting pillow is trimmed in vintage rick rack (or wavy braid as it was known during the Civil War era). She has an emory strawberry with her at all times and of course she has beautiful pin feathers. Ok, I couldn't resist.
.....And there are chickens in my Etsy Shop. Stop on by and you can see the patterns for two hooked rugs featuring chickens.
This sweet chair pad features my hooked portrait of one of my favorite hens that scratched the dirt here on the farm. Her name was Miss Paisley.
The other rug depicts one of my favorite farm chores. You guessed it, feeding the hens.
