Chicken Or Roosters !!

These are my Baby Chickens, We got them from Dylan's Kindy, I have been told the ratio of Girls to Boy's could be more than half of Roosters, Some are quite a bit bigger than the others even though they all hatched out in 3 days. They are now 6 weeks old, I will have to find homes for the Roosters or take them up to the Animal Farm at The Strawberry Farm. Anyone Know How to tell.?? Apparently Roosters have longer legs and Tails and there combs grow faster, so there is definatly a couple of Boy's in the bunch if that is the case.

Inner Circle Pieces for M C

These pieces all 32 of them form the inner circle.

Mariners Compass Pieces

These are pics of the Outer Circle

Mariners Compass Progress

Well I started My M C I decided to do it in 1930's cause I already had quite a few and bought a few more on a trip to Sydney last Weekend. I have done the outer ring now and have sewn all the pieces for the inner circle. This paper piecing is slow but worth while when you see the nice sharp points
