Catching up

Here is a block I added to belonging to a lady in one of the Round Robins I am in. I just love her cross stitch peacock. Here is the part I added. Did a paisley trying to make it look like the eye of a peacock feather, with a little mirror in the eye. I missed using that perfect shade of blue in a peacock feather as just could not find any beads just that color. Below the paisley is a little seam treatment using a feather stitch with a lazy daisy with a bead as the "eye". Below that I did a maidenhair stitch with beads and lazy daisy stitches again.
This block is from a beading Round Robin and love how Victorian this one looks.
I added this button and flower bead cluster. I love these acrylic flowers I got on eBay. To the left are some little flowers I added in beads and below is another maidenhair stitch with beads. I love that stitch.

You are definitely in a different Peacock round robin group than I am. Mine is close to coming home - 2 more people, I think.

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
