Scrappy Chicks Lobby for BCharmer


I woke up this morning to the most amazing and heart warming demonstration! Look what was going on in my front yard this morning:






What the....? and Why the...? I know! That's what I was thinking, too! I stayed up late last night finishing these little cuties, and I thought this might be a little show of appreciation. It is a bit much, but hey, chickens are very kind folk. Well, I logged on to my e-mail and found out that BCharmer has been nominated for a very cool honor by Etsy Blog Readers! My heart was so happy reading that one of my messenger bags has been nominated in the category of "Outstanding Use of Fabric." WOW, I can't believe it!


The way this works is that Etsy puts up items for a vote to Etsy members. Each member (that's most of you) can vote for their favorite item one time. The winner gets extra exposure on Etsy! If you go there to vote, you will notice that there are many many cool artists there. SO cool are they, that I know you will be tempted to vote for one of them instead of me. That's okay. It's okay to be tempted. But you'll vote for me, right? Here's the link, now don't let these hard working chickens down! They're counting on you! http://www.etsy.com/voter_list.php?ref=voter&room_id=62 And don't forget that you'll have to log in to Etsy in order for your vote to count.


Now here's a little extra bit that I wanted to say first, but I was bursting with news about myself, so I had to get that out. Those cute little chickens that I made: they're designed by the fabulous and talented Myrtle and Eunice, and you can get your free pattern to make your own adorable chickamajigs on her blog! But don't make these to sell without her permission. These are great for gift giving, and the pattern couldn't be easier to read.


Peace out, voters! It's an honor just being nominated.

An outstanding use of Chickummyjig fabric to boot! They're lovely. I always get a kick seeing the pattern made by others - well done (and I'll get on to the voting malarkey now!)...
