The giveaway is half done


I merrily stitched away last night and got this little chicken wallhanging to the 'finished top' stage for my 300th post giveaway


Sarah reckons the hen has been smoking some sort of illicit substance and is stoned - personally I think she looks like every other busy mother on this earth, totally knackered and jolly glad of a rest :o) or at least that's the sort of impression I was trying to convey - you make your own mind up on that one. She also told me that I'd got the bottom RH egg the wrong way round - do these kids have no soul or quirkiness - I meant it like that :o)


The kids all survived the day especially Nick who loves Secondary School - long may that continue


So really it's all down hill now to Christmas - now that reminds me I have several quilty things in mind to make for Christmas presents - guess I'd better give them some consideration over the coming weeks as it's sure to creep up on us sooner than we'd like

I think chickens usually have that inane, stoned look (see my chicken quilt for example, Lol) which explains the upset egg.

I think that look of pure fright in the hen's eye is due to the fact that she knows she'll soon have another chick to look after!! It's completely adorable, good job.

Andrea said...

love the chook. Your daughter is heading for a degree in Engineering - thats just the sort of remark I get my dh he always spots the mistake or long stitch.

What a great little quilt -- and drat, I missed the sign up for the give away!!! Arrghhh. Love both of your four seasons swaps -- and yep, buttons on joins are perfect! (if they even bother you)
