Did You Know?

Did you know that chickens love bird seed?  I often will shake the bird seed container just to see them come running out of their pen.  I thought you might like to see it, too.  Chickens are just endlessly entertaining to me.  So much better than television!

I got a couple of my projects completed.  I wanted to make a little travel pillow for Ruthie to take on her trip, and here it is next to a full size pillow for comparison.

Of course it had to have a pillowcase with lots of purple.

One other thing I'd been wanting to make was a couple of full sized pillowcases out of this same fabric.  I found these other two fabrics that seem to go along well with it.  I made them according to the  Missouri Star Quilt tutorial.  It is really quick and easy.  You should try one, or several!

We've been promised some rain over the weekend, and I hope we get it!  I also hope you have a truly wonderful weekend!

Hugs and kisses,

Good fun! You have those chickens well trained. Or is it that they have you well trained?
Great idea with the travel pillow and the fabrics in the pillow cases are gorgeous, too.
