    [​IMG] My mother is an accomplished quilter and has wonderfully creative ideas for her works of art. Last night, she called me giggling...I immediately wondered what craziness she'd thought up. [​IMG] She informed me that she and another quilter are working on a chicken-themed quilt (HOORAY!) and needed an interesting block. What did they come up with?! They wanted one of my 3 week old EEs to walk across the fabric with painted feet. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Today she brought over some non-toxic paint and dipped Ruby's feet in it and set her down on the fabric block. Ruby walked across it in many different directions and it turned out beautifully! After a quick bath, she's back in the brooder regaling the other birds with tales of her artistic talent and the crazy humans who dip her feet in weird things! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Actually, several pictures were taken so my mom can add it to the quilter's guild scrapbook! If I can get them off her camera, I'll post 'em.

    Is your mom adopted??? Cause she sounds a lot like me! [​IMG] I have the idea to make my own tiles for my kitchen and let one of my hens walk across the wet clay!!

    I would love to see the pictures...Dixie
