Block 34 ~ Flock

When I first looked at this block my imagination went into overdrive.  Was the flock sheep, a flower, or birds?  Reading back to the letter this block pertained to I found the explanation ...
"I have more genuine enjoyment in caring for and breeding up my flock of beautiful White Rock chickens; ..."
and immediately felt an empathy with the farmer's wife of early last century.  You may have noticed I chose as my blog header some chickens, not White Rock, but Rhode Island Reds  that belonged to my late brother, on whose farmlet the photo was taken.

I see mother hens (large triangles) with their chicks (smaller triangles). You are certainly making good progess with your blocks.
