Saying Goodbye to My Chickens and My Fun Retreat with New Techniques in June!
This week I had my daughter take a photo of me and goldilocks who laid double yolk eggs all of the time- they were huge!!!
Above is the head chicken and top of the pecking order- her name is Loretta. She is feisty.
I had to give the chickens to my good friend with a chicken farm. She has lots of room and a nice family. I was traveling a lot and having to ask neighbor's to watch them and it was a hassle. They were someone to love and care for with Mark being gone. I kept them almost a year and I got tons of beautiful eggs. I learned lots about chickens too.
My retreat in June will have chickens as a theme. Marylouweidman.com look at the retreat post at the top and click on it for information. We need four more students. I have lots of fun prizes and beautiful chicken fabrics and patterns.
Additionally I plan to give everyone a pattern of a girl and instructions for putting things on her head on a hat. I hope to do a book challenge of this. I will give everyone a pattern they can put flowers, birds, chickens, items of all kinds and see what people come up with. I think this will make an awesome book and challenge for a fun quilt. At the retreat you can do this or your own Story Quilt or Flower Power quilt. It is going to be Put of the Box and lots of great fun!
Hope you can make it and help us fill
Those last four spots!
Take the challenge and come to the retreat. Miss Tina from LA will be flying in to cook for us and provide a cookbook. She is awesome. To sign up for the retreat write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
