Fox Trot Completed

I just finished Fox Trot, another hooked piece. I received many suggestions for the color of the little bird; black, blue, red, gold and cream, which I thought  would be a good choice. I added a touch of white to the ears and eye, so there's more balance. It's hard to tell from the photo but the border is a dark blue called After Midnight which is becoming one of my favorite darks.

I was recently asked which foundation I like to use the best. I use primarily  white primitive linen which is easy to transfer a drawing onto because it is light. And it has larger holes to accommodate my primitive hook.

I used a #6 cut throughout. I'm finding that this is my favorite size; not too fat as to tire my hands.

The pattern is available here: Fox Trot.
