First, the quilt, since this blog is mainly about quilting.
Now, my new chicken! Isn’t she adorable? I found her in a local shop, in the 70% off stuff. She cost me thirteen dollars and some change, after tax. Originally, she was $42.99. She’s big & heavy. Some kind of pottery, not resin. I had to bring her home.
And I meant to blog about this chicken two or three weeks ago. My friend’s mother came to visit her, and brought this for her to give to me. She was helping work and estate sale, found this, and thought I needed to have it. What a nice surprise.
I should be at work right now. I went this morning, and shortly after I got there, I got really sick at my stomach. Hope it’s just a 24 hr. thing. My son is now sick with that upper respiratory flu that’s going around. And of course, he has a golf tournament this weekend. After a big “family meeting” Monday night, things are much better with us. He seems to be understanding the reasons for the rules we were disagreeing over, and that for now, at his age, the rules stand. I got a note from him yesterday, laying on a plate of fresh baked brownies, that said “I’m sorry. I love you.”
