Due to having changed my name from ‘Jenny’s Textiles’ to ‘Junky Chicken’ (and having changed my surname!), my blog has now moved. You can now find me here. I hope you all come with me, see you there!

It’s been a while I know, but here’s a blog post! 🙂
As well as writing and singing some pretty awesome songs, Lisa Hannigan is also awesome in a crafty way so I thought she deserved a blog post. Just in case anyone who’s reading this hasn’t heard of her before.
Firstly is her album cover which she embroidered herself:
Apparently she also embroided all the liner notes!
Some craftyness also features in two of her music videos. “I don’t know” has her making an amazing paper cut.
And “Lille” has some pop up books.
Watch them both as they are brilliant!
WARNING!! This post is about wedding stuff again, so if you are family/a friend it’s best not to look if you like surprises! 🙂
I have finally recieved the final sari for my wedding dress, so now I can get started on cutting bits out as it is going to be a patchwork dress. This is going to be pretty scary to do as the saris are beautiful and vintage, but hopefully they will be very pleased to become a wedding dress and I will be able to make 100’s of other things too with the leftover silk.

If you are a family member/friend who might not want things about the wedding given away, such as my wedding attire and the like, you may want to avoid this post!
If you are nosey, or if I only exist on the internet for you, then read on…
This week three of the saris that we bought on ebay arrived. They took forever to find in the colours that I wanted but they are here at last 😀
There is still a fourth one on it’s way, which will hopefully arrive soon, and I have yet to make a final decision on which pattern I want to use, but I now at last have some thing to make my dress from!

My Mum (my best customer!) commisioned me to make this salt dough fairy door as an easter gift for a friends little girl. Unfortunately this is the best picture I have of it, as I never got round to taking one of it in the light box. It really is better in real life!
