Ain't Nodoby here......

.......but us chickens! When I first received this Anchor kit I wasn't sure if I liked it because it was so different from my usual style. But, as I started working on it and the chickens came to life, it really grew on me. I do like the bright colours and it is a perfect match for my terracotta and blue dining room, which is where it now hangs.

The people we bought our house from used to keep chickens and sell the eggs and although the idea appeals to me, with four crazy dogs who chase anything that moves, it would probably be a recipe for disaster!


  1. Hahahahh!! no it not works with for dogs to hold chickens !!

    Don't even think about it !!! hahahahhahahahh!!!

    Have a sunny weekend hugs from me and for the doggies of course !! greetz Ria

  2. Very Pretty! What beautiful work! Thanks for your visit! Four dogs that like to chase things and add some chickens that might be a recipe for disaster :]

  3. I would say that piece is just perfect for your house with its history of chicken raising, Shirley. You did a beautiful job in your stitching AND your finishing :)

  4. I don't like chickens my parents had some one year. My mom said never again lol. In this cute picture the chickens are quiet. :)
