Yeahhhhhh- one week of intense (obsessive) piecing and here are 42 blocks from Bonnie Hunter's newest book. She calls the design "Daybreak". I used scrappy, but didn't do string piecing in this version.
A gift from a dear friend. Some of these chickens started in my home years ago, but in a fit of me going crazy from too many UFOs, I gave the chickens and fabrics to my friend, knowing she would find a good home for a finished project. Then, this lovely surprise gift came back to me!. Seeing it in an original setting makes me wonder why I didn't love it at the time. The combs and wattles and chick beaks are all dimensional. I can't stop looking at it - so cute!!! What a warm and loving gift to me.
What are those little dark critters walking over the corner?
That's what they are - meant to be attached to the trunk of a tree, looking very real. The pine tree will protect them from elements, and too much sun. Aren't they realistic?. I lived near Smokey Mountains for long time and bear cubs were sometimes seen in the mountains.
A lot of cooking happened over the last 2 weeks - I decided to try out the seldom-used food chopper and determine if the blade was still sharp, but never imagined this would happen. I covered the teensy cut with a bandage and because there were potatoes to peel, I put on a rubber glove for a hour or so, while I went about my duties. When I removed the glove, the finger tip was really full of my body fluids!
