Chicken Love

My sister's sweet mom-in-law sent me a beautiful towel she embroidered with a red chicken(looks just like my Buff Orpington--those are a beautiful butter yellow). My grandma also did a lot of this work. I love it! Of course I won't use it(I'll have to wash it with bottled water, we have rusty well water)--it hangs where I can see it and smile.

How beautiful! I just read an incredible story today about a red embroidered quilt. You can find the story here:

Thanks so much for coming by today. I'm really behind in my blog-hopping.

I'm not shure but I think Brita water filter pitcher will remove the rust particles... give it a try. Cool chicken!

Love the crispness of red on white. This would look nice in a black rustic frame, if it would complement your kitchen (not sure of the size of the embroidery).
