Spring Chicken!

Hello, hope you have all had a good week.  It's been busy here, making new items for my Etsy shop, working on some swaps for our Mixed Media Studio group and then also dealing with the category change fiasco over on Etsy (don't ask if you don't have an Etsy shop, suffice to say it is a mess!).

Any who, my last item for the Old Farmhouse Gathering team's 'Colors of Spring' celebration is now completed and here she is:

A little hand appliqued Spring chicken ornament, ain't she sweet?  I made her from muslin that I aged with my coffee aging mixture then hand appliqued some felt flowers and leaves to both sides using a blanket stitch.

I just used a couple of pieces of jute twine for her legs, I love them!

As you can see she is a long legged chicken, must have a little roadrunner in her somewhere ;O)

I appliqued flowers to both sides so that no matter where you hang her she'll look 'purty'.

So now onto completing my swaps for the Mixed Media Studio; I have a spirit doll just about ready to go and a couple of button ATC's and the March banner will all be in the mail by Monday.  I'll post pictures soon so you can see what I've been up to.

Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget that on Monday, February 23rd the OFG 'Colors Of Spring' celebration will kick off on Etsy.  There will be lots of wonderful new creations from the team, I'll post the link for you as soon as everyone's listings go live.  Talk again soon and happy creating!
