Easter Chick (and worm)

This evening, I picked up the Rhymeland block du jour, but I was in the mood for something sweet. Since I am trying to "adjust my lifestyle" to avoid having to take cholesterol pills, I reached for this little treat instead of the peanut butter cup I had a hankering for...

The shirt is still damp from washing out the transfer pencil.

I think this little chick is so sweet I can hardly stand it!

What do you think? Making a friend, or shopping for Easter dinner?

This is another motif from the 1948 Simplicity "Story Book Trims". ( I wrote about the first one I tried, here.)

For this one, I used a different stabilizer - the tear away kind - and it went much more smoothly. I had to kind of pick to get it all "torn away", but it worked a lot better for me, than the dissolving type did. I stitched it in back stitch with two strands of floss

It was a very quick project and it satisfied my yen for Easter candy with zero calories!

I agree, that is sweet. My opinion is the chick is making a friend!. Love, WS

Yes, definitely making a friend. You can clearly see they are having a conversation.

Lovely day, isn't it Mr. Worm?
Yes, indeed chicklette, it is a fine day.

I like the worm's expression.

Hmmmm...I am thinking the worm looks like chocolate...
