Black Tie Boogie Blog Hop

I'm happy to be participating in another fun blog hop! Thanks to Vickie and Madame Samm for all their work to organize this one.

So the theme is roosters, hens, chicks, or turkeys and I chose hens/chickens for mine. I've had this design in my brain for a long time, and was happy to have an occasion to bring it to life. It's another table runner that features hexagons as the main shape (like my Patriotic Sheep, Pumpkins on the Vine, and Flaky Snowmen runners).

A hexagon chicken? Yup, it's possible...

 
Her head and body are both hexagons.
 
And her head is tilted because she's asking the age-old question...
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
 
I don't have an answer for her, do you? In any case, her friends are pondering the question as well. Here they are in the finished 12" x 26" WoolFelt table runner, appropriately named "Which Came First?"
 
 
This pattern will be available in my Etsy and Craftsy shops soon. I hope you like my project!

  67. HaHa - that is so cute. Hexi heads - works well!!! And of course the chicken came first. In Genesis it tells of how God created the animals and the birds. The eggs came later after the rooster was created. Thanks for sharing and have a joy filled holiday season!
