Happy Chickens


I have been inspired by the latest posts on Sew Mama Sew, and as it's my Sister-in-Law's b/day coming up, thought I would test both ideas out on her.

I got some fabric ...


Then I made the tote bag complete with French seams - they are GREAT!


And tomorrow I am going to make a co-ordinating purse using the applique tutorial.

For now though, I would like to thank everyone who put forward name ideas for the girls. It's been a tough decsion with toooooo many wonderful names to choose from but in the end, it was a comment I saw from Ali on Moogsmum who also has new girls.

And so Ladies I give you ........ (drum roll) ....

EGGY and PEGGY.


So called because Eggy (front) will lay more eggs - 350 per year, than Peggy (back) at 250 per year.

Aww Eggy and Peggy! Love it!!! Sadly, one of my old girls died this week (she was about 7, so not a bad age) and the others are getting on so not so many eggs for us. I'm going to let our girls enjoy their retirement before we get more though. In the meantime I'll have to enjoy your chicken picture vicariously. x

The tote bag looks lovely. I'm just rediscovering French seams too - they're so pleasing!
