I love chickens and would like to have the space to be able to keep some. Since I can't have the real thing I'll have to make do with fabric ones. I've started a new quilt with a theme to satisfy this fetish!
There are various roosters and chooks around the house and this will be the next addition.
Isabel (7) has got into the bird a patchwork background idea too. Today she has entered a competition in the RSPB Junior magazine which involves drawing some wildlife. She chose to do a red-backed shrike which we have sent off in the certainty (?) she'll win this one. We've never won a competition before so we are working on the law of averages!
Meanwhile it's roast chicken tonight with lemon and rosemary.
Well we can't be romantic about our feathered friends all the time can we?
