Progress on Peacock

On and off yesterday I was able to whip stitch all my wool applique pieces down.  I then started with Mr. Peacock’s head which is cadet blue velvet  and did a coral knot around the edge with Very Velvet and then a stem stitch in a linen floss just inside of that in a tobacco color.  Will continue down his body with different embellishing stitches and then some beading.  So hard to choose what to stitch next but this is the fun part. 
For the outer border I think a applique of cherry blossom branches with blossoms in all shades of pale pink to deep might work.  Still thinking on this part.

The flower above is one of my own designs.  This will be fun to embellish with stitches and beads.
More later.
