I have a new project underway today. Violet Craft came out with a new pattern - a peacock, and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. Arrived in the store this week, and it immediately came home.
I hunted through my stash for just the right fabric, and remembered that I had bought some a couple of years ago that I loved - because it was peacock coloured. The line was even called Peacock Paradise (by Northcott). Dug it out of the "fabric that needs a project" pile, and discovered that not only are the colours perfect, but I bought exactly the right amount of background fsbric for this project. It's like it was meant to be.
I started the pattern today - and one single peacock feather took me all afternoon to finish. This is not going to be a quick project :) But here it is, in all of its lonely glory.
