For those asking about the chickens, they’re both doing great. The least injured chicken is probably well enough to go back with the others. The black chicken still has skin exposed and I don’t want to put her out til she has a few feathers. I’d rather keep them together so they can go back with the other 8 together. Next week we’re supposed to have highs in the mid-50’s so the chickens will spend all the daylight hours outside. They dig and scratch and chase bugs and I think they’ll get into less mischief when they’re so busy so if I can survive the weekend with the two injured chickens in the downstairs garage, I’ll put them both out on Monday. Then I’ll spend a lot of time out there with them making sure they’re playing nicely together. I’ll tell them you all asked about them! 🙂
Wednesday I finished piecing the second Peaches & Dreams quilt. Yesterday I quilted it. Today I hope to get the binding done.
The light border fabric was much lighter in the first one (shown below) and I decided to make the lighter border a bit darker in this one. I think I like the above quilt better. Maybe it’s too orange for normal folks but I like it.
For my next trick project, I think I’m going to do this in blues and leave off the borders. Some people just don’t understand that a quilt isn’t a quilt unless it has at least 5 borders! 🙂
Here’s how EQ says it will look. Imagine it with a dark blue binding. It’s probably not something I’d ever prefer over a quilt with borders but I at least want to be able to show those in my classes how it will look with no borders . . and maybe they’ll come around to my way of thinking! 🙂
