'Happy the hen that's free to roam,
She's sure to lay when she goes home!'

This little hen (cut from my hand-dyed recycled cotton) with my own words hand-stitched into the piece, is a favourite with those who believe in free-range poultry keeping! A unique gift, guaranteed to bring a smile, or a cheerful addition to a corner of your own kitchen perhaps? Mount carries the title 'Happy Little Hen' together with artist's signature - my studio stamp is on the back.

The embroidery is presented in a lightly distressed white wood frame measuring 7" (18cm) square, and comes glazed, corded, all ready to hang.

I always pack my embroideries very well so that you can be sure your purchase will arrive in perfect condition. I will include a little white card with double-sided tape in place for you to affix to the back of the picture, so you can add a personal gift message should you wish to do so.
