All My Chickens, Week 24, Rhode Island Red

This week and next are a two-part project. I thought it might be cool to make a pillow using the two different chickens from Martha's State Bird Embroidery Patterns. (from this link, click on "old fashioned line drawings")

This week, we'll do the Rhode Island Red chicken (uh, Rhode Island, of course)
in redwork (which just means embroidery in only one color, red, using whatever stitches you need to complete the work, mostly back-stitch, chain stitch, or other outline stitch of choice).

The download has all the state birds, so print what you need, and re-size if you want. I'm excited.
