Clucky the chicken, with her chicks!
Now the pattern... after my rant the other day, i sat down and thought about the pattern some more, and honestly it wasn't the pattern, it was me.
I was making things a lot harder than it needed to be, by changing the colour of the lining of the wings for a start... it wasn't impossible, but it did involve a lot of thinking...
The other problem i had involved turning the tail and the comb... the pattern used pellon to make both of these pieces nice and fluffy, however it made turning them quite hard, i eventually removed some of the "bulk" of the pellon, which made things much easier.
Overall i think she is a pretty awesome chick!
