Merry Christmas



I realize it's been too long since I last posted and it wasn't something I plan this mini vacation but I did want to take a moment to wish  everyone the best for the holidays.
So here's to a very 
Merry Christmas 



And I'll be writing more soon so thank you for sticking with me during this dry spell I have been in. 
I will explain more in the next time I write.

My Christmas "Chicken" Tree



My "Chicken" Tree 

I had made all this last year for Christmas
and to be in full disclosure, I haven't taken it down. It stayed up in the corner of the living room all year. That is how much I love it



I had found a crochet pattern on Ravelry for these rooster ornament. I ended up only making one a rooster (love machine) and the rest to be my flock I have
   

If you leave off the tail feathers they look like hens.


 So I made them to look like my flock of girls.


Then I added these fake eggs I found at Hobby Lobby,
except the ones in the wooden box at the bottom of the tree, they are real.


 I put the rooster at the top, looking over his hens.


 For garland I use a boa of white feathers.

 I took these pictures on my I-Phone using the camera + app I have.
Sometimes I get some really good pictures


And sometimes I forget to check my photos, a little out of focus.

Here is the flock
Now that I have them on the tree, I believe I could use a few more.
They are easy and really do not take long to make.


I am reposting this one and adding a backlink to a 
Christmas Tree Party
