~*~ Chickens and Roses ~*~

Margaret, one of the FQ sewing group, had another trial with her incubator. I took 6 eggs to class but we found that one was cracked. 5 were put in the incubator and Margaret made up the numbers with some free-range eggs she bought from the butchers!!

Would you believe it the "butchers" eggs hatched!!! and here they are- Verity and I are having to hand rear them cos my hens won't have anything to do with them but Margaret has done a brilliant job over the last 2 weeks and both are strong and healthy.

The children are looking after me and I am sitting with my leg elevated. I have managed to finish the "Tilda" rose. I had a first attempt with felt but the result I got was not soft and fluid enough, I am quite pleased with my 20's fabric version and Caroline,I pinched your idea of using pinking shears for the leaves.

Hi Helen, Love the rose - but so sorry to hear about your foot! What a disaster! Who would of thought that sewing was bad for your health! (although we all KNOW how bad it is for the health of our bank accounts!) I had a friend who broke her foot ironing - I definitely knew there was something wrong with that strange hobby which is why I have never taken it up!!! Get well soon, Lucy xx

Love your rose, but sorry to hear about you foot! Seems like you've had one injury after another:( It's a good thing your family are looking after you.
