Motifs For "All That Jazz"

Been reading the various blogs by CQer's and everyone is thinking about their blocks for the All That Jazz project. I too have been thinking of what to do with my block and the various motifs that could be associated with the south, Mardi Gras and so on.

One of things that comes to my mind besides the little Southern Belles (Crinoline Ladies) is peacocks. Yes, I remember seeing photos or a movie or something that took place on a southern plantation and there were peacocks roaming around. Wish I could remember where exactly I saw that.

So what do my readers think of this idea? Yes, I love doing peacocks and it may not even work as I really don't want to try to stitch a "Gone With The Wind" house on an 8 inch block. I don't know how to tie that in with the "All That Jazz" theme and my little musical buttons but I'm open to ideas if anyone has any!

And speaking of seeing, these bifocals are getting on my nerves!

The only thing that comes to mind, that would work well with your CQs are dangly beads, loads of colorful dangly beads. Always reminds me of Mardi Gras.

Pam I vaguely remember seeing something recently, about peacocks in the gardens in the movie "Gone with the Wind", so I think it would be neat to include one on your All That Jazz block! After all, you have had plenty of experience now, stitching peacocks, lol!
