like it better than I do.

I started out easy by using the glycerine blocks you can buy in the craft stores. Any essential oil can be used to scent it. I try to buy stuff when Michael's, Joan, etc have 50% off coupons. A lot of times you can use things around the house as add ins, dry oats is an example.

I had brought back a bin of yarn from my mom's a couple of years' ago (since she can't knit/crochet any more). I used "trums" for Myrtle's coat and just kinda wandered. My great-aunt K taught me how to crochet. I haven't forgotten...it's been a long time, but I must say, while doing that, I felt K looking over my shoulder. She died in 1987.

You need to make a video on How to Dress a Chicken, I'm sure it will create quite a flap!

Oh no! Myrtle may be the Joseph of the chicken world. Her sisters were jealous. Myrtle and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat!
