Chicken Scratch


The Quimper Hittys received some beautiful blue gingham –  Patience was alarmed when the hen enthusiastically scratched around in it…


…but Patience is wearing the result of the chicken’s scratching!

Thanks to our Hitty friend who inspired the “Chicken Scratch” Embroidery project!

  1. Interesting that you had this post today. I am going to start to make my first piece of chicken scratch. Timing is everything as now I am inspired to truly get started. It isn’t for Hitty as I wanted to work on a bigger piece first.

  2. This bonnet is just so pretty! Great work by the Quimper Human and that talented chicken! Marie Claire is very impressed and is now trying to teach her hens to do this.

    • Thank you very much – I especially like the opportunity to slip in some rickrack!
      Marie Claire has hens of all ilks – I bet there is at least one in her flock who could oblige!
