Quail and Chickens
Yesterday I let my chickens out in the back yard not really thinking to much about the quail. Late in the afternoon the kids came in and said that the quail was hanging out with my chickens.
I glanced over at my little coop, of course, I didn't notice a extra chicken in there. I fed the big girls most of the bread and opened the little coop door when all heck broke loose. The quail started flying which scared the little hens who started flying. I opened the door as fast as I could for him to fly out. I was so afraid of him getting hurt or breaking his neck.
He flew out to the top of my roof of my chicken house and then flew off to a tree. I have no idea how he got into my chicken coop with my little hens. I have thought that he must be someones bird that escaped and to see the way it acts with my hens makes me just more sure of that.
I just had one thing I made this week. It is terrible to be so busy that it took me three days to make something that should have taken a hour or so. One of the things I am terrible at is dropping my sewing needles and not being able to find them. On the other hand my husband is great at finding them...with his bare feet...in the dark...at night.
So I made this little needle wallet to keep my needles in. You ask why I don't use a pin cushion? I was reminded this week, no one can keep their hands off of it. They make pictures out of the pins and designs.
Even Sasha will get up on her hind legs and steal my pin cushion and go hide and pull them out one by one dropping them on the floor.
So I made this.
I am so glad tomorrow is Friday. It feels like this has been a long week.
I hope you have a very nice weekend,
