A day inside
Thoughts: Just when I thought I had escaped winter sickness, I thought too soon! Strep throat was the lab results.

It seems to be running it's course through the family. That's what I get for drinking a cherry coke and sharing it with my grandkids. Should be better in no time though...

A good excuse to stay in my pajamas all day.

Bored with laying on the couch, I grabbed my box of kleenex, a cold drink and plopped myself in front of my sewing machine.

Still working on making some little chicks to fill a basket for easter. These baby chicks began to multiply! That is what happens when you have 2 daughters, and 1 daughter-in-law. I try to make enough for everyone.

Things: Baby Chicks

Small fabric scraps work great! I just freehanded the little pattern. Just by looking at them, you could do the same. Wool, woolfelt, or felt can be used for the beek, tail, and eye. Can't wait for them to be part of my easter decorations!


  1. Wow, you're very productive when you're sick! Those chicks are adorable!
    I hope you fell better soon, and have a great weekend,

  2. They are so cute....I pray you will be feeling better real soon....blessings

  3. sweet little chickies! all your girlies will be happy to have them!

  4. Strep throat? Oh man. Sending lots of healthy vibes your direction . . .

    Hope you feel better soon!

  5. These are adorable...especially all grouped together. I hope you feel better soon :)
    Smiles, DianeM

  6. Now this is a project simple enough for me! A stop at JoAnne's, payday Friday perfect timing! Hope you are feeling well by weekend's end! Elizabeth

  7. Such cute little chickens! I love the different patterns you used! I drew one out , hoping I can make them as cute as yours! Love your Mcdonalds story and the box! I too get boxes cuz of how they look! My husband is a grocery manager at Krogers. He just shakes his head when I ask if I can have that box that's empty! LOL Hope you get better real soon! Take care, Fran. XO
