[ chickens galore! ]

Here's the cartoon that inspired the creation of the "Chicken Soup" quilt!

I thought I would add a few pictures as a tribute to my Mom and Aunt Shirley for all their hard work on their "Chicken Soup" quilts. My Mom originally came up with the idea to make a quilt out of chicken fabric for us to use whenever we got sick. Well, my Aunt Shirley liked it so much that she thought she and my Mom should make a quilt for each person in the family as a Christmas gift, that's 9 chicken quilts! There are 4 kids in our family, Aunt Shirley has 4 kids and she had to have one for herself too of course after all that work! So needless-to-say my Mom and Aunt had their work cut out for them when she and my cousin Bethany came to visit us for a week and a half. They accomplished their task though which was to complete all the tops of the quilts before she had to go home. By the end of their stay though, we were all sick of chickens! They had chicken fabric as far as the eye can see, but somehow they managed to smile about it when I took their picture! Thanks Mom and Aunt Shirley for all your hard work! We look forward to seeing those quilts this Christmas!
