My Chicken Pincushion

With my love of pincushions, you know I just had to stitch this one by Twisted Oaks. I used a silk from HDF called Dragon Droppings and it has a tan as a base with all the colors of jewels in it. I just love this color and hope to obtain more asap. I think a large quaker stitched out of this would be stunning. I really didn't know what color of beads to use as the waddle and crown so I picked a neutral color of olive green. I think it sets the jewel tones off perfectly.
