One of my favorite things about blog hops is when the topic just happens to line up with my UFO list (which is long and rather intimidating, I must admit.) So, when the lovely Madam Samm announced that Vickie was cheerleading a very “fowl” kind of hop…I knew just which UFO to reach for! I have a dear friend with chickens who has kindly supplied us with healthy eggs for years and even let my daughters “foster” chicks into her flock. I’ve actually had the pattern and most of the fabrics sitting together in one my infamous “UFO cages” aka plastic shoe boxes for longer than I’m going to admit. (I did find the receipt with the pattern and promptly pitched the evidence!) So, here’s my version of Marjorie Rhine’s “Running Chickens” table runner.
As you can see, chickens are running every which way in this pattern which makes is a great table runner because no matter which side you sit on, you see chickens right side up! Now, as for the giveaway, I’m giving my copy of this pattern by Marjorie Rhine and a one-half yard piece of this “fowl” fabric so you can have a head start on your own “fowl” project.
Just leave me a comment on any subject you’d like (if you have chicken experience, I’d love to hear it) and I’ll have Mr. Random draw a winner after the hop ends. Oh, and I will ship internationally, too. Thanks for hopping by and be sure to visit the other “chicks and roosters” on the hop today! And be sure to hop over to Madam Samm and Vickie and let them know how much you appreciate all their work…I know I do!
For all of you in the States, here’s wishing you a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving. For readers in other countries, do join us in a piece of pie on Thursday so you can celebrate with us in spirit…I’m sure we all have much to be thankful for. I know I could start my list of “thankfuls” today and not be finished by Thursday evening but high on the list is the wonderful community of quilters who provide so much inspiration, encouragement, energy and just plain fun in my life! I’m thankful for each one of you.
