The Early Bird
Look! I don't have to stand on my head after all...
After my posting, Theri asked if "the early bird eats
the worm" sounded familiar. Well, yeah, but that's not quite it either. Ta dah! She found this on Amazon...well, of course, why didn't I look there? Simple answer: she has more brain cells left than I do. The pattern (pamphlet) is no longer available, but you never know, I will probably keep checking. Now it is confirmed that it came out in 1982 (didn't I say the 80's?) and the authors/designers were Faye Anderson and Hank Parker.
I dragged the picture of my version back so that you would see how I changed the layout. Since this would be a wallhanging behind the sofa,
this shape was better for its location.
Isn't it funny how you can have something around for years and decide that you will move on and you've done enough of that "theme" for awhile? And since Alice's challenge of first quilts, I have realized I miss this silly thing. Just might have to locate a copy or draw it myself...
But this isn't the last of my chickens! My every day dishes have Rhode Island Reds on them...
