Chicken wings



Yes, that's what I said - chicken wings.


Wouldn't you be a bit puzzled if you got an  email with the subject line of chicken wings?  Well I was!!!  

Margaret who lives here in the U.K. sent in the picture below of this pretty little doily.  She explained (good job as I'd never have got the joke) that she'd used Norman's wings and put them together to make it this coaster.  What a BRILLIANT idea.  

I must say a tremendous thank you to Margaret for pointing out that I have inadvertently designed a doily (if only a very SMALL one) - my first ever.

Thankfully she's sent the text for this so I'll be able to put the 'chicken wings coaster' together soon.  I've finished the major drawing for Georgia now so I should have time to do the web page soon.  Life permitting!!!

  3. Very clever! And how appropriate that the ad at the bottom of your page was for Buffalo Wild Wings!

  4. I've always thought wings were too much trouble to eat, especially if they are saucy. Not a big rib fan either. But these wings look delicious! That is so great that Margaret put them together like this. They make a VERY pretty doily!

    I wonder if you have any other doilies in waiting on your pattern page...

  6. That's very pretty! I am always amazed at how creative some people can be -- and the interesting adaptations they see in a pattern. I wonder if there's a way to do it without breaking the thread? (Of course, I ALWAYS wonder that!)

  7. I don't think so, Marty. I haven't honestly had time to look at it very carefully, though. Where there's a will, there's a way!! I hate cutting and tying too.

  8. Oh Janey: With the subject heading of your message I had no idea what to expect! So happy that Brain cell #3 is as creative as it is.
