If you really want a good look, go to youtube and embiggen!
I swept her and as many babies as I could off onto a spider-web brush and laid it aside for them to vacate in their own time.
In less exciting news, my table is coming along, and Andrew even got a photo of me working on it for me! Since I take most of the pics for the blog, at times you must think I just watch Andrew do all the interesting stuff...
It's looking good. "Just" got to put legs on now. Getting all the aged timber planed and sanded up has been a lot of work. I can see why people buy ready-dressed timber! (Note to self: Stop testing to see if timber is still splintery by giving self splinters.)
The chickies are growing well, Here they are excitedly waiting for their 'chicken crack' ie, meal-worms. I've been using yummy things like mince, meal-worms and chopped boiled egg to help me tame them. One was so excited to see me coming over the top last time that it did a big jump and flutter up towards me.
Pretty sure I have two hens and three roosters. Luck of the game!
Just for a change of crafting pursuits, I've been making a pair of moccasins.
A bit rough I know but the one I've done seems to work pretty well. It's all experimental at this point. Might re-lace the toe area with thonging. The thread is strong but not attractive. Will also use thonging to lace up the ankle unstead of garden string! That high ankle-bit is a great extra to the average mocc pattern. I get very tired of rocks getting into my lower-height shoes.
Ah well, off to dinner soon with some girlfriends I rarely get to catch up with! Yay! Have a fun weekend!
