Easter chook

Easter is on the horizon and while thoughts stray to chocolate and chocolate let us also remember the reason for Easter.
 
Youngest grandson tends to become hyped up when over-indulged in sugary treats, and this includes chocolate.  This year I have stitched Red Brolly's hen, and with the purchase of a couple of fluffy chickens and a small supply of eggs in the nest hopefully we will avoid too much hyper activity.
 
This chook, called La Verne in the tutorial is a wonderful addition to Easter decorations; she is easy on the eye, with the additional plus of not increasing the waist line. 
 
My chook, a plainer version, is a speckled hen has the bonus of being able to be stored from one year to the other.  Heather has tartan wings in keeping with her Scottish heritage.

Very nice little chook and nest. Love the "wee tartan" wings.

A gorgeous chookie, Shirley. There won't be any chocolate here thankfully. I am sure a lot of people don't even know why we celebrate Easter anymore. The big stores would like us to think it is all about chocolate and bunnies. It's become so commercialised like Christmas.

Love the chook and the chicks nestled under her wings. That is sure to be a winner on Easter morning.
