The chickens have landed!! Three little ladies came home to live with us last weekend, and are currently taking up residence in our dining room.

We have an Americana (the brown with the racing stripe down her back), a Blue Andalusian (the little grey looking at the camera -- Miss H named her Lulu), and either a Barred Rock or Marans (question mark for a few weeks due to a major post office mix up). They will lay green, white and brown eggs, respectively, in approximately six months. Unless one is a rooster in disguise, then that's a whole other kettle of worms. Fingers crossed that the chick sorting person at the hatchery was having a great day!
On another note, I was catching up on my Google Reader last night -- HELLO! 1000+ new posts it informed me -- and espied a new Sew Liberated pattern, the Schoolhouse Tunic (the link is a special sale link page, 20% off all patterns if you purchase by Saturday). I usually don't sew for myself, but I'm drawn to this pattern. I figure I'll either look very cute in it, or more like a Korean farmer / Japanese fisherperson.
I also ordered a vintage feedsack off of etsy on a total whim. I have what I believe is a cloth napkin made from feedsack fabric that is like THE BEST NAPKIN EVER. It is cute, absorbent, the perfect size, and doesn't get all wrinkly/wonky when it comes out of the dryer. It really is cloth napkin perfection. And I need more!
