Thank you Madame Samm and Kristen for a fun pin cushion blog hop! I love pin cushions and thought it would be fun to make a chicken pin cushion. I love chickens, wish I could have a couple of chickies, I love fresh eggs. Did you know it takes one dozen egg whites for one angel food cake! Those little chickens have to work pretty hard to supply me with enough eggs for one cake. Usually this time of year the Minnesota State Fair is just getting over, I used to spend an entire week with my sister in law and nephew at the fair. Nathan used to show chickens every year. I have learned more than you could ever know about chickens just spending time with the 4-H kids. So I thought it would be perfect to make a chicken pin cushion! But first let me share a few pictures of my nephew's chickens from a few years ago...
|Not all little chicks are yellow... some are brown...|
I made this little chick out of some felt.
|Two little baby chicks in the garden... I made a thread and|
button keeper using a chicken feeder that I picked up at Fleet Farm.
|Here's mama chicken....|
