The Harvest Peacock?


Autumn Block 1
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
Well, this will be my next block. It'll probably be a few days before I start it. I want to do some iron-on transfer embroidery first. I just thought you'd like to see this one. I'm thinking, maybe another peacock in the series. Will have to stare at it for a few days before deciding.

I'm not quite sure what the orange fabric is. It may be a cotton lame' but I'm not 100% sure. It has a lovely gold shimmer to it. The brown is a cotton print with gold metallic outlining the design. The solid gold is a crushed lame'. Very cool looking but hard to sew. Last but not least, the leaf fabric is a sheer organza with metallic gold & copper embossed leaves on it. I put some plain gold lame' behind it. This stuff is tricky because the embossed leaves are not ironable! I pretty much had to finger press it to the best of my ability!

So stay tuned to see where I go with this one!

Or an Autumn ("Fall"?) Peacock - yes, yes, yes! I can just see it stitched in gold metallic thread over those colours!
