You may have noticed that I like to fussy-cut--some might even say it is an obsession. I only had a fat quarter of the chicken fabric and did not have enough repeats to make all the roosters the same, but I still like it.

Here's a close-up of the center. The "lone hen" seems to be surrounded by roosters! And the expression on her face is where the title of "Uh-Oh" comes from!

This piece is only about 6 inches from flat side to flat side and is hand pieced and hand quilted. It's just the right size for a candle mat or doily. And, per our previous discussion, no, it is not a potholder!

See you on the flip side!


P.S. No, Jay, I don't know what the umbrella like things are for. Sort of look tree-like in an otherwise barren landscape. As an aside, did you know that giraffes have terrible bad breath? PeeYewwwwww! And their tongues are slimy. Just so you know! Someone might be on a quiz show and need to know this trivia!

  1. Hi Sharon, That little chicken quilts always makes me chuckle. Thanks for the trivia about giraffes. Bad breath and slimy tongues - what a nasty combination! Yuck! Did you enjoy the sunshine on Thursday? It was so sunny, and the car was so dirty, that I went to the car wash. So of course we had a bit of drizzle and snow today. It was just enough to wet the roads and help get the car dirty again. It's a big conspiracy - the guys at the car wash are controlling the weather. Hugs, Jay P.S. - Fifteen days and counting.


Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
