  1. Hi Deonn
    Those chickens are so adorable. I love the yellow one with the big flower on the side and of course the little chirp.

  20. These are way too cute! I'm liking the brown dotty one. If I win, I'm going to be giving a couple to my friend who has chickens. For real. She keeps chickens! And, I plan to have chickens whenever we finally have a place to call our own. :-)

    Anyway, thank you for a chance to win!

  21. I like them all! Such cute chicks.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like them all, but the polka dot one would go great with my little log cabin chicken pincushion. Don't have a picture-I didn't make it either, someone else did.

  23. Hi! Yes, yes, yes, I am a follower. LOVE your blog.

  24. No, I haven't made a chicken pincushion - in fact, I haven't made a pincushion since I was in Girl Scouts (60!! years ago). It was red with some red tulle gathered up and placed around it; it was a gift made for mom. :)

    Your Foul Fowl was well done though he looks too mean to sit beside me!! Now, the bunny was really cute; loved his ears.

    Hen parties are so much fun even if it's just watching a chick flick together - get that, chick flick!!!

  25. I'm so happy to be following you! And the chicks, too, of course. But I have to be careful not to step on them....hmmm, gotta get some feed. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  26. They are all so cute! Love the teeny one, too! I can't decide which one I love the most!

    ReplyDelete
  27. OK, so has anyone told you your foul fowl looks like an angry bird from the game? Funny!
    I like the pink and brown chick.

    ReplyDelete

  34. No, I have never made a chicken pincushion but I do have a thing about decorating with chickens and roosters in my home so maybe I'll be a lucky winner.. My favorite is the pink/brown circle (egg looking) chickie..
