Here it is again in a picture taken outside. And yes, that is a chicken's tail there at the bottom.
I so enjoyed making this quilt. I made some changes to the pattern. (Of course.) Some intended and some not. I decided it was not big enough and added another small and another large border top, bottom and sides. As you can see, I had to use totally different fabrics for the small borders. I think they work pretty well.
I've been playing some more with my odds and ends left over from other projects. I'm liking how this one is coming together. I don't like to waste. It's exciting to me to use those blocks that got left behind in the construction of other quilts. And I'm not the only one. I saw that Amanda Jean is doing some of the same thing. LOL
And now, I have to share some really sad news with you. Sunny is with us no more. Monday afternoon I discovered that she had been badly pecked by some of her elders. I brought her inside and cleaned her up as best I could. Miss Ru and I fed her and talked to her and watched over her. But along about two in the morning she quietly slipped away. I've said many times that I'm thankful that I am a lot bigger than my chickens, because they are fierce. I foolishly thought that Sunny's two mothers would protect her from the rest, but that didn't happen. I've learned a lesson here, and I will not again trust a baby out there with the big girls. I'll miss her. She was a feisty, fearless little chick. And cute as a button.
Treasure the things you value, my friends!
Hugs and kisses,
