Here's the little felted piece that I've sewn onto a background in the same colors. The blue cotton is snow dyed. I will add embroidery to finish it.
Hier heb ik het kleine gevilte lapje op een achtergrond in de zelfde kleuren genaaid. Het blauwe katoen is gesneeuwverfd. Ik ga nog borduren om dit af te maken.
This is the funky bird page I received from Susie, through a swap on stitchin'fingers. She has even sewn on real corn. See the other swapped pages on our blog
Dit is de hippe vogel pagina die Susie voor mij heeft gemaakt vanwege de ruil van stitchin'fingers. Ze heeft zelfs echte maiskorrels opgenaaid. Bekijk de andere geruilde pagina's op ons blog.

Last night I dreamed of chickens
Last night I dreamed of chickens,
there were chickens everywhere,
they were standing on my stomach,
they were nesting in my hair,
they were pecking at my pillow,
they were hopping on my head,
they were ruffling up their feathers
as they raced about my bed.

They were on the chairs and tables,
                                                               they were on the chandeliers,
                                                               they were roosting in the corners,
                                                               they were clucking in my ears,
                                                               there were chickens, chickens, chickens
                                                               for as far as I could see ...
                                                               when I woke today, I noticed
                                                               there were eggs on top of me.

I couldn't find the right green cotton to crochet the lace border so I settled for brown and I think it looks good. I now have finished only one border. I found the pattern at the antiquelibrary
Ik kon geen groen haakgaren voor de kanten rand vinden dat bij de vilt paste dus heb ik bruin genomen en ik vind het mooi staan zo. Ik heb nu 1 rand af en nog 1 te gaan. Het patroon heb ik gevonden in de antiquelibrary.
