This evening when the sun was low in the sky, I took the little babies out, two by two, to frolic in the garden. I took the precaution of clipping a wing on each of them so they couldn't fly out of the garden and into harm' s way.
They really did have a good time, and now they're safely back in the garage in their little pen where they're safe and warm. And I'm worn out! Herding chickens is hard work!! But aren't they pretty? I am so amazed at the variety I got in this bunch. I think they're beautiful. Mr. Muddling thinks I'm a little on the nutty side about chickens.
And lest you think that all I do is play with chickens around here, I'll show you a little bit of a bag I'm making. I had this beautiful piece of tapestry in my stash that seemed just the thing. I've quilted a lining inside and added pockets sized for my cell phone and camera, and another one for odds and ends. I put a layer of batting behind the tapestry and quilted that, then sewed inside and outside together. I was doing fine until I tried to add the end pieces. I don't think any machine wants to sew that many layers. Still working on it. I know. It would have been a better idea to have an actual pattern and a real plan before I started. But I didn't. We'll see. My idea is to have a cross-body bag for Quilt Festival. It's almost here you know, and I've never been before. I am really excited and I want to see EVERYTHING!!!
Hope things are working out well for you, whatever it is you're doing!
Hugs and kisses,
