I decided I needed to get on board with Dave's new found interest in chickens. I like eggs and I like to eat chicken, I'm just not thrilled with the idea of taking care of the little critters. However, I know my help will be needed, so I bought a pair of Sloggers decorated with chickens. I figure I need something that can be washed off on a regular basis. I think they're pretty cute!

I've been leaving thread on my shuttles so that I know which ones I've actually used. Since I had lots of thread left on these two shuttles, I decided to make a two-tone Ice Drop. It doesn't show in the picture, but the glass gem has a bit of iridescence that picks up the pinks in the thread.

I worked on the curtains for the treehouse today. The valance is finished and I have the sides finished for each of the five panels. My iron started sticking to the fabric, so I decided it was time for a good cleaning. It was gunkier than I thought, so it took a while to get it nice and clean. Now I'm ready to work on the curtains again tomorrow!

It's going to take a while to tat round 11 of Renulek's Wiosna 2018. I don't have the pattern repeat memorized yet, but I'm sure I'll have it soon. I think it will be really pretty when it's done!


  1. Cute chicken shoes!! :)
    Pretty Ice Drop and round on your doily!! :)

  2. It is nice to have fresh eggs and now cute boots yo get them with. That's so true memorize those numbers after about 4 or five and away you go 😀💟😀

  3. Lovely Ice Drop, and shuttle!
    I LOVE your chicken boots! I've been looking for something like this; not necessarily chickens but you know, fun boots I could wear when it rains when I walk my dog. All I could find was dull and regular-shoes-like narrow boots (I have wide feet) or the traditional farmers' boots... as much as I like visiting farms, I live in town so it would be odd, wouldn't it? So basically, I wear my trainers and my feet get wet :/

    1. Always best to know what you're looking for, right. I searched Sloggers and found some available here. I didn't know that brand before, so thank you for the tip :)))

  4. So, at the costume contest at Tat Days, are you going as a chicken? Cute shoes.
    I am still on round 10 of the Spring napkin. I was wondering about 11. Looks like a challenge.

    1. Haha! If only I could! I'll have to skip Tat Days this year. I am saving up so that I can attend in 2019, though.

      Round 11 really isn't bad. I just haven't developed a rhythm for it yet. I will!

  5. I like your chicken shoes, at least you are showing an interest with your shoes.
    Lovely ice drop and shuttles
    I like the colour of the next row on the doily,

  6. I never know what your posts will show next!
    I think I'd be intimidated working with chickens! Reminds me of Lucy and her chickens in the Connecticut house running all over the place!

    Your home is truly a fun adventure for the kids. Amusing story about the curtains!

    I can't keep track of all your projects. The new knitting spool works great, the afghan is gorgeous and you're off to a great start on the next one.

    Oh, yes, the new round of the doily looks like a lot of work, but I like the color!

  7. Love your chicken shoes. We used to keep hens

  8. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article.
    But should remark on some general things, the web site style is perfect,
    the articles is really great : D. Good job…


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
