Love sewing and chickens

  1. I'm in a sewing mood and decided to look for some new pincushion patterns. I found this website and was shocked at how many chicken-related items she has.

    Love the bantie pincushion - I think it is calling to me.

  2. Cute stuff! She must be a chicken lady. Who else but a chicken lady would know what a banty is? I love the "Chick Chat" notion holder!

    Anything whimsey is first rate in my book!!! Cute, cute stuff!!!
  4. It wasn't until I scrolled down to read about 'what's with the chickens' that I realize that she is truly 'one of us' - bitten by the chicken bug. She even included the photo of the chicken that inspired her.

    I like how she says the chicken lap sitter is good for birth control. You just sit on the couch hugging it and the sight will scare anyone away!
