day 2!

The most difficult thing so far about this 2012 stitching challenge is deciding which piece to do each day! I know some of the participants wrote out lists so they'd have an order, but ... I didn't, clearly.

Today's choice was a lovely peacock cushion in beautifully bold colours.

Isn't that gorgeous? And it's all whole stitches and NO backstitching! And, if all goes well, I will actually finish it some time before the end of the year. Although... I didn't get a whole lot done today, so not really the most auspicious start...

What can I say? I got distracted by the Sims 3! :)


  1. Holy Guacamole! THAT is gonna be gorgeous!!!!

  2. Love the peacock and can't wait to see more on it, the colours are fabalous, am now following your lovely blog.

  3. I know, right? I was practically salivating when I found this pattern -- it's in a magazine; I'll tell you guys later exactly where, but it's at least a year or 2 old. I need to find some equally beautiful fabric to finish it with.

  4. That's a beautiful peacock! How nice that there is no backstitching or fractional stitches either.
