Funky chickens and a sneaky peek!

Good morning everyone,

Just popping in this morning with two announcements. Firstly, I’ve been buying more fabric in greys, lemon and olive green. They are most unlike me! I usually go for bright designs but it’s nice to have a change sometimes.

I can feel something modern coming on Smile. In fact, I’ve already started making something but you’ll have to wait a while to see what it is. I know, it’s a bit of a tease!

Secondly, I’d like to introduce Anne in Texas. She’s new to blogging and she won the last Chicken Run. This is just a couple of the chickens she has made for you to choose from if you win the giveaway/swap. There’s a really funky one that would be my first choice but you’ll have to go and look for yourself to see it. Details are on her latest post at Peacock Hill. So, please hop over to support her blog soon!

That’s it for now. Many jobs to be done here, so no sewing today Sad smile.

Have fun,

Another giveaway swap!

Hi everyone,

I’m too busy to sew at the moment but my blogging friends around the world are still crafting YEY!

The winner of the last chicken called Lovedove from Wanda’s Life Sampler, was Sarah over at Here We Are. Sarah has been sending me photographs of all the chickens she has been making while she patiently waited and entered (for five months!!) for her turn to win one of the Chicken Run swaps. You can see them all in the Chicken Run Gallery above. She just couldn’t stop making more and more chickens!

I would like to introduce you to her latest little brood from the USA. You could win one of these beauties if you follow the simple rules on her blog here. Sarah is allowing the winner to choose one of these four as their prize.

She has also included a fantastic photo tutorial on how to make a log cabin chicken. So come on, what are you waiting for? If you haven’t visited Sarah’s blog before, now is the time to grab a cuppa, put your feet up and hop over to see what else she gets up to while you decide which fabric scraps to use to make your own chicken.

Have fun!
