Peacocks have landed

Well their bodies anyway... I finished filling in around the rocks and did surface stitching on the pond with some wonderful silk buttonhole twist that Susan Elliott sent me.
Then I decided to position peacocks before I did the foreground by the pond.. The bodies are done, appliqued to the block and stuffed slightly...
I want to start beading their tails and they will be beaded very similar to the fan by the silkie... BTW that fan is just pinned on as it needs a little repair after I rescued it from Morris... He was really pushing his luck with that maneuver.
At this point I'm starting to cut out paper to decide the size and shape of the tails.. It's going to be tough dragging beads around on my peripatetic route. You'll notice I hope, the lovely MOP button I found for the moon...

Wow, Gerry, I REALLY like this. Blue's my favorite color and I was just thinking I should make something in blue again. Pink and purple are my currrent projects. The story aspect of your block makes it interesting and the whole thing is well balanced. Wish I could describe better what makes it appeal to me. I hope you bring it to Connecticut for show & tell.

This is beautiful. I love the stones by the pond and the lovely peacocks. I'm so glad Morris survived. The little rascal!! Suzie in Idaho

Hey, What damage!!? I don't see any damage. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Maybe Morris is really a magpie or a raven. LOL. Lovely block.
