Embroidered Chicken

This chicken was given to me as a panel over 20 years ago - I then free machine embroidered the feathers, adding beads and couching to the eye area to add interest and couched the nest. Even though this is what I call an old piece I still love it. I took it into college to show my students when we were doing a section on hand and machine couching.
It was much admired so I thought I would share it with all of you.
