Lucky for her, she has a good friend in Oregon who is a very talented fabricaholic. One day, her friend, Monica was on a shop hop, just minding her own business and THIS FABRIC stash jumped off the shelves into her arms. She thought, "hey, I know someone who would enjoy this, but it has ducks on it, not chickens. Oh well," she thought, "Ducks are just chickens wearing flip-flops."
So, she went home and got her postal goodness all ready to send to her dear friend. She rushed to the Post Office, in her Crocs and very cool mommy car. The entire time thinking of how much her friend would LOVE the fabric.
A few days later, Cindy went to her mailbox and much to her surprise, there was the wonderful package of Postal Goodness and some sluggy and fishy hugs packed in there.
"My Goodness", she thought. "What shall I make out of this wonderfully yummy fabric?" When she read the letter inside and saw what her pal wrote about Ducks and chickens and flip-flops, the possibilities floated inside her head.
Monica had already turned her on to these really great patterns by Lori Smith. And, BONUS, the local quilt shop, Barn Door Quilts carries them.
So, Cindy decided to use one of the patterns to create a wallhanging and quote the talented and imaginative Monica. And here it is!! :) The embroidered chickens are wearing little flip-flops and the flip-flops on top and bottom are appliqued on with bead straps.
Cindy can think of her friend every day she goes into her sewing/guest/chicken room.
Thanks friend, for being so creative, generous and coming up with fun quotes! :)
