I picked the rooster as my next project. I was pleased how the comb came out and very happy with the delicate pink of the whites for the body. I felt a pure white would be too harsh for the toy and I liked how the original also used pink to relate to the red, orange and yellow. I left the tape on you can see how I hold down the arms (wings) and legs to keep the thread from catching on protrusions. I am listening to an audio book about two Indian guys (Zeke & Ned) living in Arkansas and they refer to the "amber eye of a rooster." So I am thinking what to use for an eye that is not black as it is here.
