A actual brick and mortar store is interested in selling my wares. Can you believe it???? People, I have been making lots of stuff for many, many years (read: obsessive compulsive crocheter/artist who has stacks of Rubbermaid bins from floor to ceiling, no, I am not kidding, filled with creations) and I've yet to unload ANY OF THIS STUFF on ANYONE. Well, that's not quite true. I've foisted this stuff upon friends as birthday and holiday gifts and I've had gallery shows that have produced a sale here and there. But c'mon! Do you think some art collector who is into expanding his or her post-modern abstract painting collection is interested in introducing a crocheted dead chicken to said collection? I think not. Hence the floor to ceiling bins of LadyLinoleum creations. It's frightening really. That's why we had to buy a condo. We need the extra square footage!
At any rate, the store wants chickens so you get see them first! I've made several different sizes for them to try out:
And Roasters (aka Big Momma)
I plan on making a bucket of wings next...
Drumstick (yes, my bird's name is Drumstick, so what) is a little disturbed by the dead and plucked bird imagery.
