"5 Little Monkeys" send some Chickens and "Colourful Friday".

Hello,

Earlier on this week I received a lovely parcel in the mail. It is always fun to get a parcel. It was my Hot pad from Angie, from 5 Little Monkeys Quilting. Angie looked through my blog and discovered that I love chickens. Angie has some cute chickens herself. You must check them out.



This is it. Isn't it gorgeous. It was put to use straight away. Presently it has a teapot on it. Just look at the cute little chicken under its Mother.



This is the back of it. Imagine a chicken taking a bath. Thanks must go to Cheryll for organising this swap. A big thank you to Angie for taking the time to look through my blog to see what I was interested in. She was spot on.


Today is "Colourful Friday "hosted by Robyn. The theme for today is Hexagons in any colour. Easy Peasy.
I found these two baskets that I made a while back. The little purse is one that I made many years ago. Most of it is made by hand. It seems this style of purse is making a come back in blog-land.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Happy days.
Bev C

Lovely chicken hot pad.
Your hexie baskets look like they could be little houses for fairies too.
Happy Colourful Friday

Love your hexagons, Bev. The little baskets remind me of my grandmother for some reason. She must have had a basket like that. And, knowing her, the only use she would have had for it, would have been for sewing.

How lovely for you to receive something that someone has made especially for you. The chickens are cut. Your handiwork on those baskets and purse are very sweet.

Hi Bev. I am back on deck after a very busy month and I am enjoying spending some time catching up on everyone's blogs. Loved your hexies and the lovely gift. I really enjoyed reading about the nursery visit. I would love to grow frangipani but my lack of a green thumb and our cold weather make it an impossibility for me. Good luck with the apples, too. That's one I can do. Did the rain eventuate?
