    THE FWS PONY CLUB Quilt-Along Wk 22 Handy Andy & Hen and Her Chicks Photo Page

    Time for all the sweet stuff ladies !!! I found some Chicken fabric that has little chicks and the Mama too! All cut out ready to go. Fussy cutting is a pain but I think they are too cute not to do it any other way. H

    My Handy Andy changed a bit; it started with a center that had me remembering the old song, "Pistol packing Mama, lay your pistol down", then went to the dogs...man's best friend: Name:  HandyAndy.JPG

You can name the other characters as you wish.

    Now Hen and chicks were a bit easier to do; had fun with this one:Name:  OldHen&Chickens.JPG

Size:  103.3 KBOf course its hard to keep a chicken in its pen...and they need the chicken wire around them, so I added the solid border around to keep the chickens safe. Our 'chicks' are growing so fast...the dark cornish chicks have a 'hawk' beak and feet like a sparrow that grasps the wire outside and hangs on to it much like a bird would...two escaped the pen and did a demo...showing me what they could do. I did get them back in with the others.

    Camera angled the picture, the blocks are square. Need to work on that camera angle and holding it steady...hard for me to line up the picture square with one eye...

    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.
