A Strutting Cockerel

Eighteen leaves are now finished, and I have been getting a bit bored.

So I spent ages on the internet on Sunday evening looking for a bird to add to the appliqué, and eventually I found a photograph of a very smart colourful cockerel.  I ended up tracing him on greaseproof paper, and then making a pattern for appliqué, made in the same way as the pattern for the leaves, but rather more complicated because I have used five different colours.

This is as far as I have got.  At the moment it looks like a whole load of nothing.  I hope that it takes proper shape once I have trimmed the pieces and hand stitched around the raw edges.
