Miss Yellow Legs

I am not sure what this little lady's real story is but I think she has stolen a bit of Christmas garland and is being chased by two unseen hens. She probably has a pretty accent too. What do you think is happening in this block?


My Prairie Schooler ornaments are zooming right along. These are such a joy to stitch. I adore the colors and the theme and I really like the Lugana I dyed. How perfect could one 12-part project be? Mind, I will regret not finish-finishing them as I go but I still haven't gone shopping for supplies! It will be an ornament finishing orgy once I have them, won't it?

If you have entered my blogoversary giveaway don't forget to leave a comment on this post too for another entry!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Looking very cute! I agree, that hand dyed fabric is absolutely lovely.

April Mechelle said...

She is so cute !! I think she is running away with that garland! lol

Mindi said...

I do the same thing, stitch a bunch of stuff and procrastinate on the finishing, then I have a day of torture and only get through half my pile.

Love the fabric you're stitching these on.

Fiona said...

looking good daffycat!!

These ornaments are so fun, but every time I see one I start singing that song. I'm sure that when you get to "Five Gold Rings" it will be stuck in my head for good! : )

I'm loving this series! You're going to have such a great set of ornaments. I really like the idea of making them as ornaments now, after seeing yours!

Carolyn said...

This is another cute ornament. I think the fabric helps the design really stand out.

I think this hen is trying to catch up with the other two hens She is proud of herself for not being a chicken and stealing a piece of garland. Okay maybe not. lol.

Myra said...

She looks to me as if she has stolen some beautiful garland and is rushing to decorate the hen house. :o) Lovely stitching.

Theresa said...

Yup!! She definitely wants to keep the garland all by herself!!!!! LOL

Lizzy Pizzy said...

Lizzy said...

Loving your 12 Days of Christmas, Sharon and I think you are absolutely right about the hen chase and the stolen garland... likely story, indeed! They are all beautiful and I have been intending to stitch them... You are certainly enabling me... Blessings always in stitches...

Charity C. said...

Your stitching looks great! You are moving at a fast pace.

Jan said...

So cute! I think she's mistaken the garland for a juicy worm!

Kaisievic said...

Your French hen has lovely yellow legs - but you will be busy when you have to make them all up!

Vinniey said...

Happy 4th blogoversary, Sharon! Time flies, I have had following your stitching adventure for years. :) Always enjoyed to see all your beautiful works. Love your 12 days of christmas stitching pieces. Partridge on the pear tree and three french hens are adorable and two turtle doves is lovely. Very nice! Your "Fill with Love" christmas ornament is beautiful too. Love the finishing. Have a happy Halloween!

Lynn said...

She's a fine leggy hen indeed! Perhaps she wants the limelight all to herself and doesn't want to share with the other two.
In any case, she's turned out wonderfully. I'll bet these stitches are a lot of fun!

Lee said...

I love it! hens are my favorite and this is so adorable!

Lee said...

I love hens - your stitching is wonderful - such a cute design.
