Little Chicken's view..........

EDIT Little Chicken is what my little sister has affectionately called herself...........she was chatting to me on the phone this morning then sent me this email to post to the SAL blog.....
She is loving seeing what we are all up to................Chookyblue

 Little Chicken's Outside View

Well, o well Chookyblue you have really ruffled the hen house!!! LOL 

When I read you new post on the Stitch-a-long blog this morning I was in stitches (pardon the pun). 

I couldn't stop laughing as I continued on reading as a vivid mental picture was quickly forming in my head. I was visualising all these sTrEsSeD OuT and FrAnTiC ladies staying up till the wee hours of the night to get their sewing done in fear of your whip. 
You have really got them running scared! 
What a hoot! LOL 
Children would not be being feed, washing left for days on end, dishes piled high, hubby's complaining ....... women with massive bags under their eyes, crazy hair that hasn't been brushed for days, still in their pj's and haven't managed to get to the shower ....... WHY????? .... because they are so afraid of not getting their GJ's and TTS finished therefore not being "allowed" in the 3rd Stitch-a-long. 

Thank you for my laugh this week (when I really needed one). 
Well done to all the ladies for their beautiful work. I love following your blog and seeing what you have all achieved. Good luck with SKofW and beware of the big, bad Chookyblue ..... sHe WiLL gEt YoU!

Little Chicken is closer to the mark than she might think! No washing being done here and the kids only got fed because they have an adult sister living here! (GOT TO FINISH! Bought my SKofW book today!!!)

Love you Little Chicken!! I am yet to feel the crack of the whip but am an interested by stander and a hopeful participant of SAL#3. Sometimes husbands just have to step in and do a the domestics whilst the women are busy!!

Loved your comments! I was thinking I would sign up for the SKoW stitchalong and finish the Tis the Season later....(GJ is already finished - phew!!) ....but I didn't reckon with Chookyblue!! She is a great motivator!! I spent Sunday and Monday sitting on my butt quilting and sewing binding down....no shower....no walk for the dog.....didn't take phone calls....but it's finished (and thank God I live alone so the no shower thing didn't have an impact on anyone else!) so have emailed a plea to Chooky to please be allowed to "play" on the SKoW SAL now.....!
