Jane knows that hens make better doorstops than roosters. Roosters can be nasty. So she made a bunch, all different colors and sizes and put them up for adoption on her website Little House Home Arts. You probably know Jane from her pin cushions. She just gave one away in the Common Thread Give-a-way on the first of July.
Jane and I have showed our work together a lot, since I first invited her to be in one of The Pig Barn Gallery’s Exhibits. And now she’s going be showing and selling her work at the Bedlam Farm Open House on Sunday, July 21st. It won’t be the usual hoards of pincushions and wallets, but we’ll have a nice selection on display in my School House Studio. (everything’s smaller this time around) And along with Jane’s pincushions, I’m glad to have some of her Hen doorstops for adoption also. Each one is named and has papers that tell her story and I have a feeling they’ll be very comfortable hanging out in my studio for the day (especially since Frieda will be in the house)
So come to the Bedlam Farm Open House, (click here for more details) it’s just a couple of weeks away, and adopt a hen to hold that door open, the one that always wants to swing shut even when the wind isn’t blowing. And if you can’t make it to Bedlam Farm, you can meet Jane’s hens and hear their stories here.
