Craftster Pick of the Week – Don’t Forget The Chickens!


It's the Craftster Pick of the Week - brought to you by Mr X Stitch!

Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.

We’ve a few chicken fans here at Mr X Stitch Towers. My grandad kept chickens when I was very young, and I remember going to watch the new chicks hatching under a warm lamp. And Mr X has some venerable ladies in his back garden! Obviously, so does ktiounsometimesy.

I live in Portland, OR, so of course my household has a brood of chickens in the backyard.  Unfortunately, as the days have grown longer, I’ve forgotten more than once to lock the chicken coop at night.  Which means we’ve lost a few of the chickens to a sneaky (and now very fat) neighborhood raccoon.

It’s been a few weeks and I haven’t forgotten to lock up the chickens once, so our ladies are happy and healthy.

Evidently works! Great idea, beautifully stitched.

See the original Craftster post here, and be sure to come back next week for another great pick from the forums!
