Seeing Roosters, Now In Progress!

Have you ever set aside a pattern to make "someday", and one day you just find it again and decide "someday" has arrived? Well, that's exactly what happened to me this weekend. I found this awesome pattern that I had stashed away to make "someday" and thought it was the perfect one for a rainy and *ugh* soooo dreary weekend... and I was off! Hours of tracing and cutting later, this is what I have to show for my efforts:
TADAAAAA! Seeing Roosters, is now in progress! I still have SIX more roosters to cut out but I have six ready to sew, and I feel like a rock star!
woo-HOO! I'm halfway done...
Each rooster is unique and goes on a different colored background. These are on the same background because I wanted to show you the actual roosters but they will each be on a different color when they are stitched down. I am using all hand dyed woolens for the roosters and the background. I'm still deciding whether or not to machine applique them....
But I will mull that over as I cut out the last six...
Stay tuned; more Rooster news to come!

Very cool! The second one looks funky. Do they build up to a wall hanging? How big are they?

Sounds like it's going to be great. You cut those roosters so perfectly! Teeny scissors?

Yes I know exactly what you mean. I am currently working on a project that was in QNM June 2000. How sad is that? Your roosters look great.

Verrrrry interesting! I am pretty limited in my quilting and/or appliqueing skills. You always have the best projects...this one is sure to be a winner! I only dream of such divine creations!! It's dreary here, too! :( dana

Hand stitching would be my choice, Brenda. Love it!
