Hello Deonn - these chicks, chilets, and owls are very clever! I love that with just a change of HST positioning the whole bird becomes something new! Wow - seven sisters - what a wonderful group to have as part of your life. Your new blog banner by Madame Samm is good - she is certainly very talented. I did like your old one, though. ...Margaret

I love your chicken ideas. Wish my mom were still alive, she LOVED chickens and a lap quilt would have been something I could have made her and she would have adored it. Will have to make something with those chickens to remind me of her!
