Peacock Progress

work on the peacock piece continues

now that the head is complete, it's easier to get an idea of what this critter is supposed to be

stitching down the first tail feather took almost an hour last night -- there are five more feathers to stitch -- this will take a while!

 after posting the black and white line drawing yesterday, I thought I should post the colored version now that it's ready

it looks more like something real with the color added

the next step is to print out the many, many pages it will take to create a full size pattern -- about 64 pages worth, to be followed with much trimming and taping

all in good time, all in good time

All in good time, my little pretty, all in good time. (Cue cackling.)
