Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Chubby Chicks

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Okay, call me a homebody but I didn't make it out to see the city last night.  I was wiped!  After class, I grabbed some to-go food and headed back to the hotel to relax.  The great thing about driving here rather than flying is that I could bring along some stuff that you normally wouldn't want to stuff in the overhead bin.  Like my sewing machine!

My hotel room was so dark that the fabrics looks black, but they're actually a fabulous navy blue.

And here's a closeup of the pattern that I'll be following.  Those adorable little chicks are appliqued on, so I'll be learning how to do that for the first time.  I think it should be easy enough.

I spent the evening cutting fabric and ironing the patterns onto the fabric.  Then I realized that I only had my quilting foot on the machine, so I couldn't get started sewing.  Drat! 

Tonight, I PROMISE I will head out and see some of Indianapolis and come back with pics for you.  It really is a cool downtown and I can see what Kansas City aspires to.  Apparently, Indy used to look just like KC until they underwent a downtown renovation for the Pan Am games and the Superbowl.  There is so much to do here and I have just one choice for dinner, so it's going to be fun seeing where I end up tonight!

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
