Mending Monday again. This time a darling image of a poultry family. I spent two weeks researching and haven't been able to find any finished embroidery similar to this. Which leaves me winging it with color choices for my rooster.
I love every little thing about this. The eyes, the fuzzy chicks, everything.

At this point you can can choose to transfer the image either light box or window. This time I decided to transfer the image to a twill fabric sheet (purchased here) and work it into a pillow. This can also be done for a quilt. Muslin papers are available as well.
I shrunk the image down from its 8.5x11.5 in. size to 7.5x9.5 in. to ensure I had enough room on the edge for my seam allowance.
Note: After one week of working with the yellow floss on black lines I decided it was time to change the image color.
This the image yellowed.

Tonight while the College World Series game two is on I will continue to stitch dutifully. Can you guess which team we are rooting for? Carolina Gamecocks...
