LET'S TALK STORY.......CHICKEN STORY




You can get the pattern for the chicken from fat cat patterns, just click on the cat on my right side bar.

So...I made this pillow for my husbands partner's wife. Why you ask?

They arrived here in January. She was very ill but waited a few weeks before doing anything about it. She decided to go to the emergency room...but when her and her husband drove up to the emergency room a chicken came out of the door. She just said, back up dear, we are not going in there. We thought it was so funny and so my husband and I had the same ideal...to make her a chicken...so here is a chicken pillow.

I quilted the front and back to make it sturdier.....and notice the Amerika Samoa embroidered on the bottom....yes Krista my machine can do that... She just got an embroidery machine, Pfaff....and I went over there to watch her learn to use it....went home wanting one....but my pfaff does a little embroidery...hummmffff

So there....actually, I am happy for my friend. She is amazing and in a few post from now I will show you just how amazing she is, even tho you have seen some of her work. I am trying to convince her to do a blog.

  10. What a cute pillow and what an appropriate gift for that gal. I think I, too, might have wondered about the kind of care I would get in an ER that had a chicken running out from it!!! LOL
