Glorious Needlepoint Chicken

 

People either like chickens or they don’t.  Chickens are one of the most common domestic animals. Did you know there are more chickens in the world than any other kind of bird?

I was recently inspired to design a rooster needlepoint. The idea popped into my head one day and so the needlepoint began.

The design has been drawn directly onto 10 count canvas with a fabric marker. I have to go over the lines I have drawn from time to time as the lines fade within a week or so.  The wool is a combination of Anchor and DMC tapestry wools in varying shades of dark grey, browns and reds.  The background will be different shades of the same green.  Still thinking about the border.  We’ll see there is still time.

Wishing you a wonderful week.  Hope you have tons of time to stitch.
