A Fabulous Suprize in the Mail

As many of you know I hate to sew or even touch fabric...I brake out into a sweating mass of jelly puddle on the floor.  The saddest part of all of this is that as a teenager my mom taught me how to sew.  I participated in all the sewing 4-H events in our community for the 10 years I was involved in 4-H.
I have no excuse--but hate to sew. 
So when Brenda contacted me about one of my chicken patterns that is for painting and she was going to sew it I thought "better her than me"!
But look at how cute this chicken turned out!  I have been amazed and in awe since receiving it.  I let my daughter open the box and next thing I knew she had added it to her critter collection!

This is the pattern I sent her and the results are stunning.  What a talented person Brenda is.  That is called thinking outside the paint brush.  Listed below are the fun places to find her work.  Check out her cow and strawberry!  FABULOUS!!


  1. Hello Barb I cringe at picking up a paint brush LOL, give me a sewing machine and I am a happy lady.
    Thank you for sharing did she give it up or did mom have to take it back LOL
    I am so glad you like it thank you for a great pattern!!

  2. Ohhhh! So cool Barb! Love the way Brenda interpretted (is that a word?) the pattern! ~*~Lisa

  3. That's awesome! I have one in burlap;) Thanks to you and Brenda. I would love to sew, but me and a sewing machine never seem to get along;(
    This is a wonderful partnership Barb!

  4. Wow lucky you! Brenda does great work doesn't she!

  5. I love it! Both as a painting and as a sewing pattern! But then again I love to do both!
    Prim Blessings!

  6. I agree with Carol such a wonderful partnership made up of two EXTREMELY TALENTED LADIES! Thanks for sharing I love that chicken in both forms. Enjoy your day !

  8. I have seen the chicken and I think Brenda is very talented indeed. And who would have thought to take your painting Pattern and turn it into a Fabric one!!??

  9. Isn't Brenda talented Barb? But then again, look at the cute chicken design she had to work with! Love her take on your cute chicken, you make a good team! Deb
