We're closing in on the final layout for the speedy chicken quilt. Today I almost scorched my retinas trying to sort fabrics between red, red-orange and bright orange. It is remarkable to see a red fabric switch to orange when put up next to a true red.
Now that I'm living in Portland, seagulls are a common sight. So it seemed appropriate to have a seagull chicken.
This chicken falls into the red orange camp.
This chicken had a wing transplant from another chicken. Now it fits better in the brighter orange diagonal. Meanwhile, the donor chicken now has a darker wing and fits neatly in the rust orange diagonal.
And to set the mood for the day, we had snow overnight. Most of it is now gone. And yes, the hummingbirds (Molly says yummingbirds) were still coming to the feeders. And given this is Portland, I had one male that was wearing a bright pink hoodie--an Anna's hummingbird.
And inspired by the winter Olympics, Molly placed Gold in Sewing Room Mayhem when she launched from the ironing board to the sewing table sending iron, spray bottle and scissors flying. To celebrate, Molly had a parade around the house (AKA a piggy-back ride).
