    Nice job, I like the print on the bag and it's a nice size too. You are a talented gal! [​IMG]

    Maybe you should have us distract him so you can get your orders placed...we do love to help each other out with the chicken addiction you know!

    Too funny about the WFBS and Antonio B. You're right (and what a handsome bird/guy too)!

    @tjo804 & @lovemy6hens . There are a number of on line tutorials that demonstrate making the feed bag tote. There is also at least one showing how to sew a garden apron from one sack.

    This is the main one I followed, except I did regular mitered corners instead of cutting those squares out. And I sewed the handles upside down to the top and turned it all under to make a sturdier top edge with handles tucked inside the tip seam. I spent more time exploring photos and in deciding where to cut the bag..It sews up really fast. But don't expect neat stitches on plastic, use some scraps to decide on needle and stitch length.

    Wow, great stuff there. Your DD has talent, love the painting. I can't see a signature, if she didn't sign, you should ask her to add one :)
    Never heard of the Quarry Critters - I especially like the one on the egg.

    I was somewhat afraid my red shoes would get too much attention in the coop, but the hens didn't even react..They are quite comfortable in the yard and coop, but would not want to go on a shopping trip in those babies.

    I agree, that's Antonio:)

    @tjo804 , cool stuff! How nice you have that bell from your Dad. With the suet cake holder, we use one in the run for things like greens and apple chunks...the girls have fun pecking at the food and it doesn't get dirty.

    Thanks for sharing your chicken décor. (And if you're anything like most of us, you'll find more pieces that you forgot you even had!)

    I have some of the green ones out in the run I even put them in the growup pens for the little chicks I hadnt thought about putting it out there but I think I will do that tomorrow.
    Yea Dad had a knack for finding things to make someone blush or just belly laugh. He was quite the character.
