Just was taking a look at the blocks that have been online for us all to drool over. Love this Ala King one. I want this one. My husband would just love this.

Well, you could add a chicken perching on it's shoulder!!!! The scarecrow is awfully adorable, and if you want to send them in as is, I for one would love to have one! Chickens belong in a fall garden.

I think with a chicken on the shoulder is a great idea. He is a cute scarecrow. you could make his head egg shaped and then he would fit right in. Nice needleturn.

I think your scarecrow is adorable! I would love to see him in a "funky farm" swap, as I can see him in a field of corn...

The chickens have been fairly quiet today. The wind has been blowing real hard, and cold too.
And no new chicks joining the group today. :(
