Peacock Cushions

Well, I was finally able to list the lace in my Etsy shop! I also added a few needlework and craft books

Book Blackwork Embroidery

but by the time I got to adding these, the site slowed way down and I gave up for the moment!

Rose Garden Peacock Cushion

Autumn Peacock Cushion

I finished these over the weekend. Thought they would make pretty little cushions for sitting on a bed, chair or shelf. They're about 7 1/2 inches square. I still want to do a Winter themed peacock block but haven't been able to come up with the right combination of fabrics. I want to do the peacock in white so I have to be sure that it will show up well.

Speaking of Etsy, the new version will be great as soon as it speeds up a bit. It's very professional looking and rather elegant. There are some nice options for sellers although the shipping thing is kind of making me crazy. I don't care for what they've done with that but I'll figure it out in time. The photos are larger and you know what that means? I have to start getting better at taking pictures! Ha, ha, ha! Overall, I think in another day or two, it'll be really nice!

I have more things to add including this little pack of Mill Hill seed beads"

I'll get some more things listed as soon I can. Seems first thing in the morning is a good time to do that.

I didn't stitch at all last night, so I don't have an update on my Girl With A Kitten purse. I'd like to work on that some more later and I have another idea I'd like to try out. If it works, I'll share photos here.

I'd like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who commented on the cushion I made for my mom for Christmas. It's always so nice to hear that my readers enjoy my eye candy! I really love blogging and sharing photos of my stitching. I hope that I've given you some cool ideas for your projects! Thank you everyone!

These are just simply stunning, and way too pretty to be used as pin cushions. I love the peacock tail, and not sure if that is floating embroidery or eyelash yarn.

I love those peacock pillows!

Darn, for the second night, I went over to look at your laces on etsy and half-way through my looking they did the downtime for fixing stuff!

Peacock handbags, peacock cushions...what next, Pam! I know I sound like a broken record, but you are so creative. Thank God for people like you on this Earth, who contribute such beauty to a sometimes ugly world...
