I am also working on a challenge piece. We were given 2 skeins of silk thread and a bag of beads. We need to use at least half of the two skeins of silk thread (mine are blue and white) and then add the beads. I have added several other colours of thread as well. It is going to be a peacock and I have started two slightly different versions on black backgrounds.
|Version #1 with multi coloured body - head not stitched yet|
|Details of eye of feather|
|Version #2 blue body (this could change)|
The third work in progress is a combination of applique, paint, and embroidery. It is my tribute to Newfoundland. I put it aside for a few weeks but have made some progress on it this week.

Bye for now. I'm heading to the Saguenay for a camping holiday!
