chicken the first

silver laced wyandotte hen

A silver laced Wyandotte hen. The body is white silk with black wool thread over it – the thread is nicely wooly, and gives a nice contrast against the shiny of the silk. It isn't as thick as the perle cotton I've used in the bobbin before, so the lines I can draw from the back are thinner and neatness counts more. 

I thoght I was working on a chicken breed called Sicilian Buttercup, but I was so indecisive about what to do that I gave up and made this girl instead.

I like her.
