Peacock Pinwheels is a "spin-off"

 As you all may know, the online Needlework Show is open today. My newest designs are in the Dinky Dyes booth and I believe this link gets you close. Just scroll down to see my designs.




Be sure to look for  Peacock Pinwheels -never seen before anywhere!  It is a much smaller “spin off” of Panoply of Peacocks.  

We used  Classic Colorworks cotton floss with Dinky Dyes silk xref. It is worked on 28 ct white Lugana over 1. Design size is 219 x 221;  finished is 7 7/8” square.

Peacock Pinwheels is full cross stitch, but has one border row of Smyrna Cross.  Design can be worked over 1 or 2 threads.
These are some little WIP teasers to give you a close up view of Peacock Pinwheels.


  Clearly, I have been in a peacock mode the last few months, what with Tickle My Fancy coming out two months ago at Nashville, and now this newest!  Here you can see the larger Panoply of Peacocks, the inspiration for Peacock Pinwheels.  There are more peacocks in that one than Carter has little pills, as the old saying goes.  :-)
