My Peacock Won an Award!

With Eyes Like Diamonds in the Sky
Several months ago I completed this beaded embroidered piece for a beading challenge with my fibre arts group (Out of the Box) and Canada Beading Supply.  We were given a bag of beads and silk threads and we needed to use them in the piece.  I stitched this peacock on a black background.    All the works are presently displayed at Canada Beading Supply, 210 Colonnade Road, Unit 12, Ottawa, and will be there for several months.  It is an amazing exhibition of bead and threadwork.  If you are in the Ottawa area be sure to drop in.  After the exhibition the pieces will be auctioned off to support the Heart Institute.

Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite piece.   On Monday I was notified that I won!!!    It was a tie.   I share the honour with MaryAnne Toonders and her beautiful piece called City of Gold.

It was a lovely surprise and a nice way to end 2012.   The prize is a gift certificate for Canada Beading.   How yummy!
