French Country Hen Wool Applique...


French Country Hen Wool Pillow

This Sassy Red Hen was so much fun to applique !
Appliqued with a combination of mill dyed and hand dyed wool
in rich cranberry and ruby red woolens.
The pillow edge is trimmed in a Glass Beaded Blanket Stitch,
in rich reds to match the hen.


I hand embroidered the Hen with a variety of stitches that include...
Spider web, French knots, Bullion stitch, Fly stitch,
Cast on blossom, Fern stitch, Star stitch and Couching.
With the arrival of Autumn, now is the perfect time
to pick up a project for the cool days ahead. ;)
