Saw this packet of sugar substitute at Denny's the other morning. First I thought it was a PC things. Turns out all the sugar substitute packages had different sayings on them. Doesn't take much to amuse me, I had to read them all. Then I asked the manager if he knew the package said this. And I handed him this one, he looked puzzled like "What the heck?" Then I showed him all the packets were different. No one had noticed it.
Up early enough to see the sunrise over the desert this morning. Rather pretty.
But on to my chicken project. This is the pattern - showing one completed by the designer. I saw it being made on a quilting show the other day so looked into it. The designer is Laura Heine from Billings, Montana. She has a fabric store and has several different collage patterns. It looked fun. Including the background it is 36 x 42 if completed without a border.
This is the full sized pattern. You trace it on to a light weight white fabric.
Lots of small fabric pieces are ironed on to fuzing paper.
Some of the pieces I've already cut flowers etc out of.
Some of the pieces I've cut out.
And then they are layered onto the material pattern and when you like the way it looks they are all fuzzed down. As you can see I don't have many cut yet.
So that's how I'm spending my days, fuzzing [fuze] and cutting and hunting through my stash for material that looks like a chicken. Should keep me amused for a while.
