Designed by Cathy and worked on pure linen twill with Appleton crewel wools, the peacock was inspired by a visit to India in 2015. The embroidery also incorporates the use of silk & metallic threads with seed beads as an optional decoration. The embroidery is worked in an 8" embroidery hoop and measures approximately 6.5" square. It is worked on a piece of linen twill measuring 12" square. Suitable for anyone with some experience of stitching. As a guide, you should already be able to confidently work stem stitch, French knots and blanket stitch.
