Grandma's Flower Garden Block

 Only one Grandma's Flower Garden block was appliqued onto a background fabric this week.  I like this peach color.

Yesterday I added three more girls to the flock.  These three are pullets (young female chickens).  A friend of mine gave Curly the rooster to me earlier this week (see him here.). She is starting a new flock and went to West Virginia to get these girls.  She had to buy a certain amount and had more than she wanted.  I purchased the rest of them from her so that she had the right amount for her coop.  Chicken math -- 4 square feet of space per chicken in the coop.

Meet Jill:

Meet Sabrina and Kelly:

Yep, Jill, Sabrina, and Kelly -- Charlie's Angels girls...

Welcome Curly

 Added a new member to the flock today --  Welcome Curly!

He found the nesting box.  These photos were taken the first two minutes that I left him out of the cage when I brought him home.

He has a floppy comb.  It will be interresting to see if it stands up.  He was in a coop with his two brothers, Larry & Moe.  Now that he is king of the castle we will see what happens.  It could just be the comb that he has.  I believe that he is a first generation Easter Egger.  Hopefully when I breed him, the chicks hatched will lay colored eggs.

The comb looks healthy and is not pale.  It is just floppy.

Below you can see him stretching out his neck right before he did his little wing dance to impress the ladies.  

You can see him start to do his little dance on my YouTube Channel (The Shahann) here.

Project Quilting Challenge 1 -- The First One 14.1

 This morning found me slow stitching this one orange circle onto a little table topper for our son.

The one orange circle in this position will help him know that if he puts his water bottle on that spot, I can easily deliver all his other food to his "office" when we eat in the living room.  LOL.  

I'm participating in the first Project Quilting Challenge called The First One 14.1.  at Persimon Dreams.  The one appliqued circle is my interpretation of ONE.  

For the quilting on the table topper I listened to the design on the fabric and followed the diamonds and stitched along the lines.  This is my first finish for 2023.
