Finally! Henrietta the Hen is finished! I went through a stage where I didn't do any vintage embroidery. But now that I've had my little break, and depending upon how busy life gets around here, I'll might pick the needle back up in November.
I used a light orange and dark orange on her feet to give them a little bit of texture.
She originally had eggs in her basket, but I changed them to freshly picked strawberries. I thought it odd that she would be taking her offspring to the market to sell them. I don't know, maybe she just really needed the money (to pay off her hat and umbrella debt)? Then again, maybe she was just taking her eggs out for a stroll. That's a little better. Either way I thought it strange, so POOF! they magically became strawberries instead. No discussion needed about strawberries.
I used an artiste brand variegated brown for the hen's body.
That's all for today. I hope to get to more stitching soon, but things are crazy-busy around here, so we'll see. Until another time, have a happy, stitching day!
