"Namsen"
(Bates' recipe with substitutions.)
 
Tag: Silver tinsel and yellow silk
Tail: GP topping with red hackle fibers (still learning out how to add hackle without messing up the tail 🙁 )
Butt: Black ostrich herl
Body: Yellow, orange, red, and blue dubbing (sub'ed for seal and probably should not have used florescent colors 🙂 )
Rib: Silver flat tinsel and gold oval tinsel
Throat: Black hackle
Wing: Yellow, blue, & red goose, plus two shades of turkey that were sub'ed for feathers that I don't own.
 
Mistake on the wing with the blue overlapping the red. Surprisingly, it did exactly the same thing on both sides and both sides look identical. If the pattern used a JC eye, I think I could have hidden this mistake. Debated about adding a JC eye anyway to hide the mistake. 
 
I still have a lot of work to do learning to do tails and wings correctly.
