More Additions To The Pink Peacock Block


Brown Block6
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
As you can see, my Pink Peacock is coming along nicely! I added more beads, lots more! I covered the seam to the right of the peacock.

I also worked up my usual plain tatted edging for the bottom left seam and added some gold sequins to that. The tatting is worked in DMC varigated perle cotton #8. I don't know why I do the same tatted edge over and over. I have other patterns. I guess I do this one because I know it by heart and don't have to stop to follow the pattern.

Anyway, now when I look at my blue peacock block, it seems to me like it needs a little something more. When I finish this one, I may see what else I can do with the blue one. I will of course post photos of any more additions!

I also started the stitching on my apron yesterday. When I adapted the sheet & pillowcase border to fit the apron, I managed to get 4 of the repeats on it. So, I've just about stitched the first motif. I plan to make time for some stitching on that later today as well.

Pam,
Will the Pink Peacock, and the Blue Peacock, go into the same quilt, or are you doing something different with them both?

V, Thank you so much! I'm having a good time with everything.

Janet, no these will be finished as separate wall quilts.

Kay Susan, thanks! Your stitching is beautiful too!
