A Chicken In A Basket

 Hello friends!
I stitched and finished this cute chicken ( Hens and Chicks)from With Thy Needle and Thread back in March .. and while I liked the finish I didn't love it .. and now I love it ..

 
Originally I had used this picket fence from Hobby Lobby to hang it .. I found this Tobacco Basket at Hobby Lobby last week and decided to take it off the fence and pop it in the basket ..
Right now it sits on top of my kitchen shelf.. not sure if that's permanent .. but it looks awesome there..
I left it mounted to the ticking covered sticky board .. added covered buttons .. a ruffle of torn white and red homespun .. a couple cotton branches and a gingham bow .. I did use magnets and metal washers in case I want to change it out..

I like the picket fence finish but it depends on whether you want to stand it or hang it. What really caught my eye was the Roosters with sunflowers and fence. Do you remember the pattern? Going to watch the video tonight!

What a lovely finish Priscilla. I really liked the white pocket fence but I'm sure you can use it for something else and the basket looks awesome!

Very cute in the basket! I loved the fence, too, but I know you and you'll quickly find a new piece of stitching for it :)

Would you please tell me the linen you use. I can't remember what video you discussed this. I think it was Monaco but can't remember the count. Thank you, I really appreciate your talents and sharing
