    Since I had the new flooring put down in the kitchen...I had to make a new wall hanging to cover up the ugly circuit box that is exposed...so of course....these chickens seemed to be calling out that they wanted to be a wall hanging rather than a quilt. So...whipped this up this weekend..finished binding it Mon. night.

    It hangs next to a hutch with my G-G-Aunts everyday dishes..over 100 yrs. old

    These were part of a panel from bearpaw that I cut apart.

    Nice job.
    You reminded me that I need to make something to cover my electrical box. It's behind a door that stays open most of the time....but when closed...ewww it's ugly. Thanks for the reminder.... now I have another project TO DO.

    Patti, what a great idea!! It goes perfect there, made to fit...of course!! :D

    I was admiring the dishes in the cabinet, just as I scrolled down and saw how old they are, what a lovely heirloom :D

    I wasn't overly struck on chicken fabrics...but have to admit they are GROWING on me...not literally, otherwise best see the Doc, but you get my drift.... :lol: :lol: :lol: I think it's the country charm feel this type of wallhanging has, that's appealing to me :D

    Very cute wall hanging! So inventive to use it to hide the new box.

    Thanks for all the nice compliments...DH likes it, so thats what is important I think.. :wink:

    Izy...I just love the dishes..my Mom and Grandmother drove quite some distance to pick them up in person....years ago. Mother used to always serve the Thanksgiving turkey on that huge platter you see on top of the hutch. It hasn't had many turkeys on it since Mom passed away..but I still love to look at it. When I retired...DH had cooked me a fabulous dinner and had the table all set with these dishes for when I came home from work for the final time. It really made the day special. :lol:

    What a clever and decorative way to display your chicken panels. I would hang that anywhere in my house! I LOVE country.
    I visit this board and am just inspired over and over again by all the fine crafting/quilting/sewing/artisanship displayed in your creations. Your, sandpat, and the group on the whole.
    It just makes me so hopeful and inspired to see how beautiful you all are making the world with your abilities.
    Thank you for sharing
