The Chicken Run: LOVE DOVE is on her way to Montana, USA

The Oh Sew Tempting Chicken Run Giveaway Sort Of is off to Montana, USA.

Sarah at Here We Are was the lucky winner, and the chicken pincushion has a new name, LOVE DOVE. Check out her wonderful blog for the next leg of the Chicken Run.

Sarah suggested I de-stuff LOVE DOVE and send her that way. So smart!

Even though LOVE DOVE looked deflated in leaving her birthplace, I know she’ll make new friends out West:

The good thing is I don’t have an empty nest. Lucky Stripper and I are planning our next sightseeing tour. Over Mother’s Day weekend, we visited our daughter in Abingdon where she is interning at The Barter Theatre. Lucky Stripper and LOVE DOVE had a great time. Oh the memories.

Take care, LOVE DOVE,

THIS CHICKEN:

I made two wonky log cabins. I used the same pattern directions (the sizes at least) from Granny Maud’s Girl site.

I left an opening in the bottom/belly to insert the stuffing. (Please do not stuff your giveaway chicken with foodstuff or plant material as it may not be allowed into the country you are sending to.)

INSPIRATION:

I was inspired by the LOVEworks promoted by the Virginia is for Lovers tourist site. I blogged about it my previous post.

I took photos of this chicken at the Richmond International Raceway where they have a LOVEworks piece at the Front Stretch entrance:

See PRE-RACE PHOTO SHOOT gallery in the sidebar for more photos.

LEAVE A REPLY, and this chicken could be yours.

Lucky Stripper is now checking out the sites in Virginia.

Lucky Stripper arrived yesterday via Air Mail from Germany:

It was a nine-day trip with some air sickness, but she’s now ready to explore the many tourist sites in Virginia. She first looked on the Virginia is for Lovers website. And this post caught her eye: LOVE WORKS. There’s one in Abingdon, Virginia, and my daughter is in the “V” in this photo, taken last year.

LOVE ART

It’s inspiring, and I might want to make a LOVEwork of my own. Go check it out and be inspired too.

After we do some sightseeing around Virginia, I’ll get to making a chicken pinchusion for the next leg of the Oh Sew Tempting Chicken Run Giveaway Sort Of.

I promise not to stay out too long with Lucky Stripper, and soon I’ll get the next chicken on the run.
