Hello out there in blogland…. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while and I finally got the kick in the butt that I needed to start a blog of my own. I hope to share bits and pieces of all the crafty stuff I love to do – quilting, knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, rubber stamping, jewelry making, etc, etc etc. My friends will tell you that I have an ADHD personality where crafty things are involved. I am easily distracted by the newest shiny thing….. oh there goes a chicken….. so I need lots of fun projects to keep me happy and quasi sane ( although the state of my mental health is also open to debate ). Anyway I hope you enjoy what I share here today and in the future.
So what’s with the name of this blog and the quilt shown here?? Well I am head over heels in love with all things polka dot and I’m pretty taken with chickens too. I have a collection of polka dot chickens that I display in my family room ( yes I know it isn’t your typical décor, but it makes me HAPPY!!). When I first started collecting polka dot chickens I thought they’d be rare enough to keep my overactive collecting mania in check but I was wrong and now I have a whole flock of them.
Also having the polka dot chickens helps with the fact that my homeowners association frowns on having real chickens- party poopers!! This isn’t the only chicken quilt I’ve made ( I know I know there is something not right about this) and I’m working on another one right now for my kitchen. I’ll show you that one when it is a bit further along, right now I only have 3 chickens made.
Have a great day...
