Legless chicks

(apologies for the gratuitously misleading title to this post, couldn't help it)

Inspired by the Chickens of Normandy, and confined to the house due to a prep day for a "virtual" colonoscopy*, I felt the need to stitch something relatively easy and slightly pointless.

It starts with a little baby chick getting all stitched up and trimmed to size:

And then here are some beakless birds, waiting for inspiration to strike:

which it did, in the form of little pieces of folded metal from a tomato puree tube. 
So here are some beaky chicks:

Just need some legs now!

(Nothing "virtual" about it in terms of the prep day, I can tell you - luckily the actual thing itself just involved lying in superman position under a large doughnut-shaped X-ray machine for 5 minutes)


  1. Thinking of you. The chickens will help to take your mind off things.

  2. Love the legless chicks. Hope the x-ray results were OK

  3. I'm just intrigued by the "Superman" position!!! Hope test results all okay. Thinking of you.

  4. Hope everything is OK, thinking of you :)
