Tuesday's Task

The week is off to a great start. I'm well on my way to a productive week, well, almost....My little pile might not look like much right now but I tell you, it is destined for great things, it is destined to become...
drum roll please,Yes, it's my very own "It's Spring Chicks!" mat. Hello!
This is another great design by Cathy Wagner that I have kitted for the shoppe. It can't all be work and no play around here, so I'm "testing" her pattern, ahem.... And if the "pattern" is good, mine will look like this:
I know, I know... all you skeptics out there are thinking, "Fat chance, Missy!" but I'm telling you, I can do this. I can make my own fancy schmancy mat. It usually helps if you actually follow the directions but I have to confess I'm a fusible web kind of girl so, I did fall off the wagon there. But no fear, no one will ever know that my chickies are facing the wrong way, I'll photoshop them into reverse, LOL! I'm so bad!
But let's not get ahead of ourselves here, today's task will be to cut out the black background and cut the little color patches . I want to put the patches on the eggshells before I put the eggs on the background. Does that make sense? OK, you just gotta trust me on that...or read the pattern for the "real" way to do this. hahahaha. But that's happening later, break is over, back to work!
You can order your very own kit here, I promise Cath's directions are way more accurate than mine, LOL!

those chickens rock! Am thinking the fact the big ones are facing the littles is just general socialisation.

I love your upbeat writing as much as the cute photos :o) Hey! I heard back on my book proposal... it was turned down for being TOO PRIMITIVE. Darn. Back to the drawing board and submitting to another publisher :o)
