It’s a wrap on the French Hen! I started off with the flower shape on the wing in another color, then changed my mind to this darker felt. Use short lengths of metallic thread, work slowly and carefully, and realize you can still have a mess! Deep breaths, the side not seen is not so important. Just wanted to show you my back, so you don’t get frustrated when this happens to you. This photo reflects a full day of stitching, along with a few of the threads I used in the little teacup.

I tend to find recurring colors around me as an unconscious source of inspiration in my stitching. So, if you’re uninspired in color selection, surround yourself with a few beautiful things you find inspiring, you’ll never know what can happen! This morning I was just about finished. I am glad I remembered to add the hanging thread before I sewed her up – I almost didn’t, and that would have made things much trickier! Although the French hen wasn’t particularly hard to put together, I did find myself wondering at times if I was doing it right. With the wattle, comb, and little pantaloon-looking shapes above the feet, there are a lot more little pieces in play to sew and sandwich together.

Larissa’s tip to use glue to hold the pieces together is perfect, but I’m too impatient to wait for glue to dry, so I haven’t done that yet. I’m also messy, and could easily picture myself making a gunky mess of my sewing. I’m also fairly sure I botched the feet a bit, but I chose not to dwell on that tiny part of the process, instead enjoying the overall project. Here they all are together – I’m really enjoying how the colors are all coming together – I’m using the same shades of felt and threads on each piece, for the most part, for a few more details on the metallic threads I’m using, check out my previous post!

I’ve followed Kristen for a couple of years now, and love her style. She embroiders and sews and more often than not combines the two – like in the picture above. Her Instagram feed is always filled with such bright and colorful photos. It’s a true pleasure for me when I see one of her pics pop up. Below you can see some of my favorite projects from her feed.
