"New chickens?" you ask.
"New chickens!" we answer.
(Can't resist putting Binky's name in here!)
And for the grand finale--Mama Hen's Mama made this amazing wall hanging.
Each chicken is individually sewn from 20 or so pieces of fabric. We can identify the fabrics used to craft the chickens from Mama Hen's Mama's many quilts and other sewing projects. From the stories told on Christmas day, there were many conversations prior to the holidays (and behind our backs) about: how many chickens, the best color combinations for chickens, the kinds and colors of beads that would be best for attaching the birds, and where we would hang it. One thing Papa Hen and Mama Hen know is that this wall hanging is perfect. An absolute gem. We love it. You can't tell from the picture, but for those of you who know our home, we hung it to the left of the mudroom door near the humongous mirror.
