12 Days of Christmas - Day 3

Chickens in Redwork
Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas at Grandma's Attic! Every day from now until Christmas we will feature a different item from our quilt shop. You'll want to check the posts each day from now through the 24th to see what Grandma has for you this holiday season!

Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas is supposed to be about Three French Hens. But since French Hens can be mighty difficult to find this time of year, we've substituted these adorable embroidered chickens instead. Chickens in Redwork features Hank the Rooster and Mama Hen with her chicks, both popular patterns in the 1890s. They can be embroidered on tea towels or used as quilt blocks for a cute little wall quilt. Stitch them up in traditional red or any other color you desire. To order, click here.

12 Days of Christmas Fun Fact:  If you are keeping track of expenses, at $55 per bird, the Three French Hens are going to cost your true love $165. Making the total cost in 2013 dollars for day three (one partridge, two doves, and the three hens) $489.99.

Christmas Quote:  "I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year." < Charles Dickens, English Author, 1812-1870 >
