100 Details In 100 Days - Day 38

I have a real treat for you today! Gina from Patra's Place blog has graciously granted me permission to create a pattern from several of her vintage embroidered peacock pieces. The peacock she posted the other day is gorgeous! If you download the pattern, please take a moment to hop over to Gina's blog and leave a thank you comment for her.

Ginas Peacock

I'm not great at cleaning up a hand-drawn pattern on the computer but I'm sure this is enough for you to work with. I use a light box to trace my designs onto fabric but you can tape it to a window too. Use light pencil marks or a quilter's washout blue pen to trace. Refer to the photo for floss colors and stitches used.

Again, please take the time to say thank you to Gina.

Hi Pam
This brought back memories. Years ago when liquid embroidery was 'in' I did a huge peacock which has subsequently been lost (most likely sold in a yard sale). I had forgotten all about it. Thanks for the memory..and I will use this on one of my CQ pieces
