Recycling in action at Craft Cental!

Contents of just one of the many bags of fabric scraps and offcuts left for us by Craft Central designer/makers, before we all dived in at our February meeting!

"Hola, Senorita!"

Not hooked - pieced and quilted! - definitely a Chicken Of Inspiration... It's by Cindy Potter Henneke and until 4 March 2012 is part of a fiberart exhibition in Round Top, Texas.

An old worn office chair revived by Chickens!

I upholstered my old worn typist chair which I sit on whilst rug hooking during the warmer weather in The Summer House which is at the end of our garden. The chair was looking very jaded....so I found some wonderful gingham fabric, on which a cockerel motif had been embroidered, and used it to cover the worn fabric beneath!

The cushion on the ottoman was progged with hemp fabric. In the centre of this cushion is an antique piece of Indian embroidery.


And yet another chicken...

Designed and hooked by Janet Knechtel
And another great addition to the International Chicken Fest!
