Let me take you through the piece

Close up of peacock’s head.  I used the padded satin technique that I used on the gold scrolls to differentiate the head from the body

The plume.  The are 6 different fibers , Threadworxs overdye Kreinik, SIlk Lame Braid, Waterlilies and Painters Palette.

And i had to throw in a few real gold beads!

Close up of stretchy flair technique.  A blog is coming soon on that.

A close look at the border.  This is a Herringbone stitch using Firewerks.  I think that is my favorite thread.  But so hard to choose!

Details of the corner.  I’ve always wanted to use the Norwich stitch and have never had a canvas that it fit on.

The “goldwork” is done in padded satin

I can’t WAIT to start my next piece.  Rebecca, Melissa or Ewe & Eye.  Stay tuned . . .
