My 12 Connected Challenge Piece for "Spring" Theme: "Ain't No Spring Chicken" by Jan Girod

This is not what I orginally planned to create, but a nap with the dictionary and I awoke with a whole new plan. After recently cleaning and organizing our studio spaces, I found so many things long forgotten about. This chicken block was left over from a Mary Lou Weidman quilt I made eons ago. She provided just enough attitude to create a great looking "spring chicken".

Her curls were originally the springs in 3 older ball point pens, those pens don't work anymore and hubbys' collection is a few less. A trip to the party store provided her legs and feet. Dismantling little notebooks left me with great legs, just the right length and her feet were part of a hand clapping toy. She has made me smile and giggle ever since she was done.
