Patchwork Chook is finished.

My friend Cheryl came to visit yesterday, to sit and stitch for a few hours. Poor Cheryl didn't get much of her own stitching done, because I asked her to help me put The Chook together, and it took all afternoon! Anyway, we got it done, and here she is, hanging up in the kitchen. The black cat behind her is not Topsy ready to pounce - it is a picture on a calendar!

Hi Gina,

Your Chook is adorable. I love
the colours and textures of the
different squares, and the
fancy stitching to hold it all
together.

Why is it called a Chook???

Cheers!

Hi Judy,
You're not the first person outside of Australia to ask that question! I have no idea why Aussies and Kiwis call hens 'chooks' but here is a link to a humorous website which goes someway to explaining it.

This look fantastic, bet you had fun putting it together. Boys keep asking for more hens, so maybe this is the answer
