funky chicken won't you lay a little egg for me...


I wanted to make a funky chicken doorstop for my kitchen so here is my first attempt. I have adapted the pattern kindly sent to me by Corinne and have added some stitching on a heart..I think it looks a bit Scandinavian looking no doubt influenced by our recent trip to Norway. We have been watching the cool and crazy dvd again tonight which is about the norwegian male voice choir who live in very very cold conditions up in Finnmark which is in the far north of Norway...glad it never gets that cold here..

I was just going to say it looks a little Scandinavian (a look I love by the way). And he sure is a funky chicken!

Lorraine said...

thanks for your comments I love scandinavian style so that is why I have included the heart. I am hoping to make a lot more folksy kind of things with a scandinavian touch for christmas gifts
