After posting the chicken, I decided it really did need some red in the tail feathers. That was the original plan but then I changed my mind. Should have stuck with it. I'm not a big fan of reverse hooking, though this went quickly. Here it is with the buttons, though they are not yet sewn on.
I found an old shoe button that I used for her eye.
Here is the honeycomb wool I used. I'm not sure whose wool it is, but I'm sure one of my readers will know the source.
I also posed the question on Facebook. I'm told that the Old Tattered Flag carries it (called Henny Penny wool) and it can also be found at Designsinwool on Etsy. Facebook readers are saying it is both a Rebecca Erb and a Dorr wool.
It's the second time I've used it for a chicken and it's just perfect. I used the above wool for the chicken and a darker honeycomb for the border.

It's 6:20 pm as I'm starting this post and it's still not dark. I am looking forward to the time change to have even more daylight hours in the evening, though it's not fun going to work in the dark.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
