So, what is the term for a bunch of chicks? According to the internet - it is a brood. I made these for Grand, 18 month old Vivian's Day Care class for a small Easter gift. Since, these go to little ones - I decided the little wings were not super important, so I left them off. The design is from Urban Threads. As you can see, they stitched out great and I was able to get all eight into my 8x12 hoop.

Penny, thanks. I left the wings off - I thought they would be easier to hold and make them easier to stitch.

Thank you, Babsie!! I started out with a EM with a 4x4 hoop, and soon realized I need a machine with a much bigger hoop. It took me years to secure the machine I have now - but, I just love it!!

To make friends with all the little girls in your neighborhood, plant chocolate mint near your front door. They'll come hang around to step on it and smell!
