Peacock Tapestry Another Update.

As you can see from the photo I have made some progress this week. This is mainly because the peacock is mostly done in whole stitches and some colours are not blends. I found that backstitching the wing was quite difficult even with the use of the backstitch chart which Emily so kindly sent me. Progress will slow now because I am back on the branches and leaves. I am on the top third now so I really want to get it finished as quickly as possible because I have some lovely things to stitch in my stash. Because I am hoping that my next wind down will be the last I will start the beading and I must remember to put in the french knots in some of the peaches. Happy stitching everyone looking forward to seeing how you are all getting on.

The peacock looks great and does seem to make the piece feel as though you are in the home stretch though if I remember right there are plenty of branches and leaves left. And I have to acknowledge that the branches/leaves look as if they are difficult to stitch because of all the counting they certainly are beautiful when they are finished. I'm cheering you on and looking forward to your next update! Pretty soon we'll get to see it unrolled right?
