Love your pattern! I now have chickens hanging on the wall over my stove! Thank you! Diyhowto.Com has a link to your page with a picture of your chicken. Placed on top of it is a flower potholder. They used the same colors for both so it appears as if the flower is part of your chicken pattern. The pattern for the flower is posted down further on their page.
