Peacock in Embroidery

Hi ...............

I am doing this blog post with mixed emotions. Mixed emotions because i am feeling very happy as today I am finally able to share my 2 month long project in embroidery. But at the same time I have some bad news to share. My brother-in-law's month long fight with life finally came to end on this Monday ie 4th March 2013. He was like a elder brother to me and he and my father shared the same name. He was a very nice soul and I will miss him. I just hope and pray that wherever he is, he is happy and at peace.

Since last Dec I haven't been able to do much. This was the only thing that I have been busy completing. I have redone this 3-4 times.... and I hope that this has come out well finally. This is the completed version.  So what do you think ?????????????

I have used silk and metallic threads and multiple stitches in this. Like for the neck section and the upper portion of the feathers I have used chain stitch..


For the body portion I have used a combo of button hole stitch and long and short stitches.

For the feathers I wanted a 3D look, so I picked up cast on stitch from Mary Corbet's A must visit for embroidery lovers or those who wants to learn embroidery or are looking for new ideas.


For the legs and crown (sorry......... the pics got hazy) I  used golden, black and green metallic colored thread and decorated it with yellow colored small stones.For the eyes also I used the same stone.

I will be going to my in-laws place for a week-10 days for the last rites so there will be no blog post for some time now. 

Till then take care and have a nice weekend !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
