What are you most proud of? Have you ever had a project that flew together perfectly, smooth as silk? Well, this wasn't one of those. If anything could go wrong it did. A Murphy's Law kind of project. When I was completely finished I discovered that horror or horrors, one of my hens was a rooster in disguise! Those tail feathers were just a bit much. Then I looked again and realized that these chickens had duck bills and those orange feet wouldn't do at all. Back to square one and do the whole thing over. Now I have two! lol

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If at first you don't succeed - you just might have a conversation starter!

Definately a hen party! I love the blanket stitch you used to sew the applique on. Very effectful and different!

Thank you! Zig zag works great, but I usually use my machine blanket stitch for applique. It gives it such a clean finish and, with contrasting thread, it can also decorate in an old fashioned way.

I would love to change this up a little for a wall hanging for my kitchen ...

Oh, please do whatever it takes to make it right for you. Some people have enlarged the templates and others have set them into blocks that are surrounded by borders of various kinds. I don't believe I've ever used a pattern of any kind without tweaking it. If you do make a wall hanging, please send me a photo!
