Hi Chicky

I spent a nice relaxing Saturday doing what I like best - hooking. Last night I had chickens on the brain. (Not sure why). But before I knew it, I had this little guy drawn on the burlap.

I think it might end up being a small pillow. So, if you have a farmhouse kitchen then stay tuned because I'm sure you "need" this pillow!

And as an homage to Alice, I've given this chicken purple feet. Shouldn't every chicken strut her stuff with purple feet??

I also got my latest copy of Rug Hooking Magazine tonight. Time to give the hook a rest, make a coffee and flip the pages for my next inspiration. I love the cover this month.

I hope you spent your Saturday doing what you love :)

    Alice will be so proud of you :) It was a stretch for me, but I love my chicken's purple feet. I almost have it bound. YEAH!!! Four more rugs to go - UGH! Love the plaids and textures of your chicken.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. They pass all too quickly.
    Hugs :)

  2. Oh so cute.
    I love chickens.
    I wish some of mine had purple feet.
    Woolie hugs

  3. I love your chicken!!! R. loved your chicken's purple feet.
    I love the colors you used too. I am so glad you are getting to hook today. I hope your day has been so nice.

  4. The first hooking I did was a chicken. Yours looks great!
    Have a great weekend!

  5. You are hooking a lot lately! that chicken looks great!
    I have that magazine too. I have not had a chance to read it yet. The weather here was so beautiful today and better for tomorrow.
    yahoo come on spring.

  6. Chickens must be in the creative air. I finished mine and hung it in my kitchen today. I love the wool you're using in yours.

  8. Your chicken looks like a dandy and is outstanding with purple feet. They look blue on my computer screen but Ill take your word for it. The plaid are great for his feathers.

    Today was a sunny and melting day and spring feels in the air.

    Take care,

  9. Hmm we bought 2 leather chairs back in December for the room off my kitchen, another sittin' place don't you know. They are being delivered tomorrow(don't ask)and I'm thinking that Chicky's colors are just right and that Chicky would be happy here. How small a pillow Kim? Would it be about the size of the autumn leaves you hooked and sent me. Ima send you a picture of the chairs and see if you think they go. They are a different kind of color. And if Chicky isn't spoken for .....

  10. Hi Kim, love your chicky, wish you could come help me with my hooking, Francine.

  11. I love your little chickie Kim, blue feet and all. I think he would find a lovely home with Pix and CH...Hope you are enjoying your Sunday, blessings, Julie.

    1. Julie Miss Chicky is coming to the Tiny Ten to roost! Aren't I lucky? Kim does some beautiful hooking!
