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.

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.
