When Kerry Swain decided to stop Nundle - Chooky stepped in - roped in a partner in crime - Sonia and created "Scrub Stitchin" which has just happened at Baradine in NSW - the town and Camp Cypress will never be the same!!
Sometime late last year I saw this pattern:
An obvious choice for Chooky ...and I thought how nice it would be if those of us who love Chooky and are grateful to her for making GDITC what is was and for creating Scrub Stitchin' which we expected to be a fun time - could each make a block.
So I started the emails and managed to rope in almost enough to provide the full 36 blocks.
At Scrub Stitchin' we gave her the blocks. I think it is safe to say she was very surprised and happy - she had seen the pattern and had thought about making it.
Here is the photo of all the blocks - just randomly placed on the "Design Wall".
This is my block:
I had also seen recently a crazy patch chook done by machine embroidery - and I made one of them for Chooky as well - she can make a bag or something out of it as she likes...I'm going to make a similar rooster.
I love chooks - and Chooky - but I am a bit over chooks for now so I am glad its all almost behind me now
