Something to Cluck About
Nope, not yet. For a couple of days, I worked on Christmas stockings, just to feel like I was getting that under control, and today, when I should have been finishing a few other half-completed items, I started a new baby dress.
This one is going to be a size 3, in a soft denim, with a red and white polka dot chicken on it.
I have a fondness for chickens - I have one in my back yard (there were 2, but Bonnie doesn't seem to be a flock animal) - and I just like them as a motif, fresh eggs completely aside.
The inside facings will be in the red and white polka dots, and I'm still trying to decide about the neckline trim - white rickrack or red. Probably red, since I'm on a kick here, but I want to add some embroidery to the rickrack to mimic something I saw online. Can't find the photo for that, so I'll just have to show you.
Or find the photo and show you.
More chicken to come. But no eggs. Sorry.
