Oh sew fun!!!!  Avis at Oh Sew Tempting started The Chicken Run and Chickens have been flying around the world!!!!  Be sure to visit Avis at her blog above!!!!  My Little Chick Lucky flew all the way from Delaware USA!!!!!  When she got here she said her wings were so tired and she took a little nap right away!!!  She told me her name was Lucky now....because she had to fly over soooo many Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants that she was just sure she would never make it to my house and then when she got here there was a Black Cat Crossing the street in front of my house...she said she started to just turn around and go the other way...but poor Lucky was just too tired from her trip!!!!  Mary at Stitching Grandma sent Lucky to me I had been trying to get a little chick to come here to Kentucky but I think they were a little worried until Mary sent me Lucky!!!!  Thanks Mary!!!!  Visit Mary at the link above to enjoy her fun blog!!!  Here is a pic of Sweet Little Lucky!!!!

She is so pretty!!!!  To win all you have to do is agree to make one chicken to give away and send on around the world!!!!  There are lots of tutorials and a couple of youtube videos of how to make them!!!!  Oh Sew Tempting has a chicken gallery of all the little chicks that have been migrating!!!!!  Too win pic which chick you would like to win and tell us what you would name him or her and where the chickie would be off to!!!!  

Here are two that I made!!!!  I started with the little baby chick and then The Autumn Chick!!!!  And then I made Wild Child Chick!!!!

This Wild Child Chick has a little attitude and has been causing some disturbance around here!!!!  Choose this one at your own risk!!!!  Will be glad to ship wherever you are!!!!!   Wonder what was up with that Black Cat that was crossing the street when Little Lucky got here!!!!!!  Check out the Black Cat Crossing button at the top of the page!!!!  A few more pics for your choosing!!!!!

Isn't she adorable!!!!!   Do you know Casie of Bebe Babies!!!!  She makes the most adorable dolls!!!!  This I believe is her smallest size!!!!  Two inches counting the ears!!!!!

Making babies this small is really a lot of work!!!!  Some are made safely for children to love!!!!  Casie has started a fan club where she will have fun give aways and specials for members!!! Too fun or what!!!!  Go here to join!!!!  Bebe Babies Fan Club!!!!!  Here for Casie's Etsy Store!!!!  Casie's Babies!!!!!  Join in on the fun!!!!!!

Triangle Quilt Along!!!!!!

Hi Everyone!!! This is an update on my Quilt for the Triangle Quilt Along!!!!! Sassy Quilter!!!!! Triangle Quilt Along   See how green the grass is getting!!!!!!!  Lovin it!!!!! It was 70 degrees today!!!!! And not one drop of rain!!!!!  It took me a long time to come up with a layout I liked for these triangles!!!!! I used fabrics I already had and I didn't have the Mod Pop colors many are using for this!!!!!  Sooooo I wanted a different layout!!!!! Now if I could quit sewing the wrong ends to the other wrong ends this might turn out pretty!!!!!!   In my dreams it works!!!!!! Ha!!!!!  I am behind on almost everything!!!!!  Correction!!!! I am behind on everything!!!!  Hope you are getting great weather and have a great day!!!!!!  hugs to all
