Well, I did it!!

I went back to one of the items I wanted to make last year but was clueless. It all made sense this time. I didn’t breeze through it. I took my time. And I understood all of the instructions. Imagine that!! 😀

Here’s a picture from the book, Fun-to-Crochet Gifts, from Gooseberry Patch.

I took photos as I made it. There are lots of pieces to sew together. Doing a whipstitch. Good practice for me for when I get to afghan making.

I didn’t take any pictures of me making the little parts. The head, comb, wattle and beak. I figured I had taken enough already.

And done!!
