The very last conversation I had on TSF before it disappeared was about eyes for my chicken thing.  We all know how long ago that was.
Well, I finally got fed up with it looking (or not looking) at me and used some buttons.  I had the white ones but no black ones & didn't want to order 100 from e bay but I was stocking up on interfacings and put some on the order.
If I change my mind and find something better it will be easy enough to take them off and replace them.  (I think the white ones might look better if they were a more solid white rather that pearly.
Anyway, my chickens now have eyes!  I will have to change my avatar.
Life's too short for ironing.

Love the chickens. That block would be great for little kitchen projects like tea cosies, oven gloves. Mmm. ..will add that to  my growing 'to do ' list!

What a difference a button makes.  Lovely work Plosh.  <3

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Oh yes Plosh they are real chickens now .. not just a block! I must admit Id always thought your chicken was on her ownsome ... on a cushion or something. She looks even nicer with the rest of her brood! I hope they are good layers ... pun intended!

Feeling the fear and doing it anyway .... er sometimes!

Your avatar chicken has woken up!   0_0

They look great.   :)
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
