Ain't nobody here but us chickens!

Here are my 15 finished chickens in a basket (oh, yes, those corny phrases are coming out thick and fast).

It has taken me a while to sew all their button eyes on. DS is going to sell them at Charity Week at his school, which we think is next week. All the kids have to sell things to make money for charity like cakes, old books, sweets etc.

I feel as if I haven't blogged much lately or commented much on other's, work has taken over a bit and I've had to spend time preparing papers and presentations. Over the next three weeks I'll be out on the road as I have meetings with 20 of our contractors, some local, some not, so I know I'm going to be tired And after Christmas ... I will be starting a new job, with a new company. I have been with my present employer for 15 years so this is quite a change, but man, am I looking forward to it.

Still haven't sewn up all the blocks of Antique Cutie - hopefully there will be a picture at the weekend.

The chickens are adorable. I hope your DS does good with his sale.

Good luck with your new job. I know it's kinda scary to start over after 15 years but sometimes a fresh start is exactly what you need. We'll be happy to hear from you whenever you're able to blog.

Glad to see you didn't put all your chickens in one basket *s*

Good luck with your new job -- it will be old hat before you know it.

The little chicks look as if they are being watched over by the momma hen. I like both the chicks and the hen. The hen is beautiful.. Is it stone? Have a great day.

Hi, love your chickens, they look like the 4 patch variety? I do a log cabin version thet I posted the instructions too last month if you haven't seen them. They are my big fete effort as well and always sell out! Great work and I loved your boy's work on his quilt. Cheers.
