~ Chickens ~

Hello!
 
what is my obsession with these little fuzz-butts lately?
I don't know...but I shouldn't say lately ~
I have always loved chickens....
 
 we have raised many feathered-friends both here in VA
and in CT as well ~

I love to incorporate them into my needlework and folk art too!


these were embroidered onto some old linen I have,
I used beautiful Valdani 3 ply cotton floss {all 3 strands}.
 

look at those tiny peeps and daffodils ~
 

I am keeping it in the small hoop as it is ~
{{ I whitewashed the hoop. }} 


they are showing up in my sketchpads 
... and coming alive in my watercolors too ~
 

Have a beautiful & peace-full
Palm Sunday my friends ~
 
Blessings from the Farm 
~ Lori
