I spent yesterday rearranging and organizing the quilt room. I not only did it once, but twice because I did not like the layout the first time. I promise I will take some after pictures as soon as I get the room the way I want it. I think I might move things one more time. They always say the third times a charm. With things moved around I have a lot of blank wall space and need to make some new curtains. Maybe I could do a design wall or hang some of my smaller quilts. Might work it out to where I could do both. Any one have any great ideas on how I could make a design wall? I live in an apartment so I can not go drilling into the walls.
In my You Give me Fever blog post, I told you about a fabric chicken that my grandmother made and I used to play with as a child. This is the chicken made out of red and yellow calico fabric.
Keep in mind this chicken is about 36+ years old. While the normal life span of 6 - 8 years is most common. Did you know that a male chicken has no penis?
Here is a picture of me around age 4 with my grandmother Lela and the chicken. I was just so darn cute back then. What the hell happened?
I have a quilt made out of this same fabric a picture can be found here. Maybe this is where my love for quilting come from... A chicken.
And I will leave you with this picture:
I would guess Thanksgiving age 4. I had a thing for legs even back when I was so young.
