So I this is the post that I thought I had scheduled to post three weeks ago whilst I was on holiday – but unfortunately I must have done something wrong and when I got home it was still in my drafts posts! So I am using it this time around as I have not progressed any further. The little peacock sewing etui below is designed by Jenny Adin-Christie and this was where I was up to the last time you saw it….
I had completed all the padding on the tail section and just started to apply satin stich to the central panel. This is where I am up to now….
As you can see I have stitched the inside middle panel and added spangles with gold thread. Then a chenille thread has been used to outline the central semi circle. I have also started to stich the background in a sparkly metallic thread. Here is a closer look…
Many thanks for popping in and look forward to catching up in three weeks time.
