Feeding the Hens.
Phew, things suddenly got a bit hectic around here - the orders have begun to increase after a relatively quiet summer, which is just lovely. I have had a couple of new things commissioned which I have thoroughly enjoyed working on - more of those another day. I finally also managed to finish a little work in progress, a work which had made it this far, but no further...
until yesterday when I completed it at last. It is my 'I'm feeding the Hens' door hanging for those of us who have this little job as part of our daily lives and judging by what I read in the land of blog, that is quite a lot of us. So, first came the hen-house, complete with rose covered walls (and no, our hen-house has no roses left on it either!). Actually, in our case the hens came first in a cardboard box from whence Dave let them out whereupon they flew all around the living room until we novices caught them and proceeded to build them a home!!! Quite a few years ago and all of us, children included, are now very able bird catchers.
Hmm, back to the door hanging - next, of course, came the hens, the inspiration for which lay in the form of our own little Gold Line called Discovery. Well, she looks a little like this anyway.
And finally came the hedging as I thought an image of our 8ft fence would not seem so appealling to the eye, and here is the finished article which would go rather nicely with the 'I'm in the Garden' door hanging as I usually combine the two.
Another job ticked off the list and now I am off to make up a bag, a Babbit, a tote bag, a..... well, let's just say I'll be sewing!
