About My Project:

My peacocks (from Jenny Hart's "Embroidered Effects" book), are now finished! It was a pleasure to improve my chain stitching, and my oyster stitching! :) I decided not to add the sequins on this, which I wish to quilt as a little wall-hanging, and instead did "oysters", with burgundy RAYON thread. This is actually shinier than how it appears here, but slippery, annoying, and frustrating to stitch with!! These are 4-strand oysters- I love the stitch, but I would rather be couching that thread!
