Well he is not blown up but his photo is. He is now almost 8 x 10, in three versions...living color, greyscale and outlined. DH said.....and I quote him... "Honey, why is there a huge rooster all over the table?" "Did you get another chicken?" Now as soon as my bead search is over and accomplished... SUEDE GOES 3-D So, Merry belated Christmas Cyn...I am going to have to order beads from all over and I know I will not have him beaded and framed or whatever before xmas. But, I will let you know as I get closer to getting him done. I had forgotten how many shades of blue there are in glass beads and I am trying very hard to find as close as possible to his plummage. Hopefully, he turns out as well as I would like...you will have him to look at in a lasting way. Keep an eye out and grab any good sized feathers he drops and I will use them in it too.
