These were fun to do.. On the dark snowballs I got to try a swirly feather meander, something I had never done. Think it turned out pretty darn good, will be using it again. The Rooster was a kick to do. I put an extra layer of batting under him - then tightly did a paisley swirl. He stands out!!! Hes so darn cute, my customer has loaned me the pattern--I wanna do one too!! Thanks for looking.
