Cock-a-Doodle-Doo



Hello Friends!

This morning while in the middle of working through my client finishing piles, I was able to fully finish my Cock-a-Doodle-Do piece by Barbara Ana Designs.

Awhile back I had finished this piece for someone else and loved it, so I immediately bought the pattern and stitched it up, finishing it very much the same way as hers.



This piece didn't have the smoothest start as I quickly found out that the fabric I had chosen was a little too light for the white rooster to show up so I actually dunked the fabric in some tea-coffee mix and kept on stitching. Luckily that did the trick!

The stitched piece is matted with some coordinating fabric and mounted to the front of this grey-washed easel with magnets (so I can switch out the design seasonally). I edged the piece with some twine and then added a bow with a star center to the corner. I absolutely love it and thank Andrea so much for enabling me!

Thanks for stopping by!
