Back to Work

It was thirty one degrees at 7:40 this morning, with only a glint of morning sun on the fronts of the houses, when  a  semi came rolling in with another batch of baby chickens; 66,400 chirping, yellow balls of fluff.





So, it's time to go back to work.  We've had a three-week break, allowing me time to crochet, embroider, and finish a baby quilt which had been on the frames for several weeks.   Three weeks gave me just enough time to begin enjoying my "off" time.

Have a great day!

  2. How adorable! I can just imagine the chirping. My niece and her husband have chicken houses so I know a tiny bit of what they go through. I know it's a lot of work. Good luck with all those babies.

  3. It is amazing that you can get any projects finished with the busy schedule you have on the farm. I don't imagine you have a lot of down time. Best of luck with finishing and enjoying your craft time projects.

  4. The little "chirping, yellow balls of fluff" definitely define purpose, and keep one moving each and every day. Good luck with the little darlings! I am looking forward to seeing the new baby quilt, and the crochet work.

  9. Oh my goodness Charlotte, I didn't realize you all tended the chickies in the winter too. That's a lot of work. I do admire your energy and farming skills. (I also am more than a bit envious of your quilting talent too.)
    I hope you and the Farmer are well and doing fine during this super cold time of the year. Take care and stay warm.
    :)

  11. Hey there, it me again. I meant to reply to your comment and sort of ran out of time...I'm sure you know what that's like. :) About the aprons, yes I use Simplicity pattern #1536. That is such a simple and fun apron to make. When I found your blog, I sure enjoyed looking at the aprons you've made and recognized that same pattern. I think it's funny that you go by lil red hen, I'm Henny Penny and we both make aprons, like dolls, and have chickens. and, by the way, I am 74. Hope all your baby chicks are doing fine.
