Just an itty bitty...

This quilt is 16" square. Lots of tiny little triangles. Not my thing so much- but I love how they turn out all quilted up and hanging on a wall. This one is made from Sandy's reproductions. She is making one from my hand-dyed stash. It was one of those projects you just had to nibble around on- otherwise, you'd go bonkers trying to keep all 100 or more pieces straight!



Speaking of chickens...

This is the chicken tractor that William made for a friend of ours- I was sorta jealous, 'cause it's a really cool tractor. But notice, he built it in the "dining room" and had to remove the picture window to get it out. Poor dear mismeasured by 2 lousy inches and it wouldn't fit through the door! He knew I was gonna blog about this. Granted, he did the work on the project in the middle of the night and didn't finish until 2am. But I still thought it was hysterically funny. Bob's chickens are gonna be so happy to move out of their cardboard box in the living room and into a real chicken environment.

When Alex was younger he had one of these for his chickens but only the hens could stay inside. The roosters had to stay outside so they wouldn't bully the hens.

Very cute block - I love the colors! I might have to get that pattern!

The chicken tractor story is too funny! Measure twice - cut once!

Love you and miss you!

LOL Ohmygoodness!!! Poor Bill. Even the master of carpentry can mess up? Yet still make it look good! That is a mighty fine chicken tractor.

Hugs to you, Nines!

I can just imagine this happening to me....those are going to be some very happy chickens. Do happier chickens lay more eggs?

Fantastic chicken tractor! Maybe he needs to do the building in a room with a double french door? :) I also love the quilt block. I'm inspired to do one of these with my repros!
