Just a wee beginning of Panoply of Peacocks. I thought I would stitch both in Crescent Colours silk and cotton - one for me and one for my daughter. The colors are a little different between the two sets of flosses, naturally so that will be an interesting comparison. I'm anxious to see the Dinky Dyes silks as well and find a set of colors that give that same peacock look.
I had a certain idea for the colors until I researched what peacocks actually look like up close! There is a lot of green! I cut back on the green since the teals are one of my favorite colors...
I am stitching this on 27 count white Linda, pending some pearl grey lugana for the other one. This design can be stitched over 1 or 2 as desired. The chart tells you how to accomplish that. Since my walls are getting VERY full, I am more prone to smaller pieces now, unless as my husband suggested, I start decorating the ceiling!
