Oh I have loved this pattern for ages now and never got around to making him until this week. It has taken me the whole week to complete, just seems like so many other things to do in between.
When I first saw the pattern in one of the Australian magazines, around end of 2004, his feet grabbed my attention, and that was the first part I made. He really is a fat chook and I have weighted him as well so he would make a great doorstopper as well as a table ornie. Hubby has adopted him, he just loves the head. Funny how different parts of a creation grab our attention first.
