I’ve been working on this 1830 Rooster, a wonderful design from Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. Her designs were some of the first I ever attempted. Lori is such a kind and generous artist, and her patterns are straightforward and user-friendly, simple and quiet!
…and, where Lori chose red, I will use a browny-pink.
Hurray! The punching’s all done, so now I’ll brew us a pot of coffee ~ 10 cups for me, 1 cup for the rooster.
After soaking in a coffee bath for a few minutes, I’ll pop him in the oven at 250* for approximately 20 minutes, or until I remember to take him out.
Here he is, nicely aged and softened. What do you think I should do with him? Should I keep him simple and just stitch down the weavers cloth for the backing? Or, should I make him into a little, prim bag with hand dyed wool for lining and ticking for the back and straps?
until next time ~ be well!
