The patches with long eared owls, Gambel’s Quails, and dulcimers are my own surface designs. The rest are remnants from other sewing projects. The pattern I worked with originally was an oval with arm holes. That made for an unwieldy collar. So, I modified the collar and I like it a lot better. I’m thinking I’ll try my modified pattern again with my next batch of proof swatches, or even specific designs. I’ll wear this to the NM Dulcimer Festival October 19-20. Should be a hoot!
