It’s no secret I have chicken envy. I know that I can’t have chickens again this year- we have a new dog, travel plans, and honestly, I can’t stand dealing with chicken poop. But I love the idea of a pretty little chicken coop and heirloom varities of chickens laying beautiful brown eggs. Anne’s piano teacher has new chicks and is keeping them in her kitchen in a box for a few weeks. The kids and I enjoyed looking at them and holding them. They were all colors and shades and so noisy!
I made a chick pattern for my book, Pretty Birds and decided it would be fun to sew a bunch of chicks for spring decorations. They are so fun and although not the real thing, they do satisfy a little of my chicken love 🙂
I had a big crew of newphews and nieces here for Easter dinner on Sunday. Anne asked, Can I give the cousin chicks to take home? I felt pretty torn- these kids expect handmade cute things from Aunt Virginia. It is practically assumed in our family! But this time I said NO. These chicks are for me 🙂
