2  Peacock Skirt cross-stitch (4 pics) in Needlework: Completed Projects by mwagen on: December 11, 2008 10:57:37 PM
I finished this today and just had to post it!

It's called the peacock skit, and it's from the book 'Cross-stitch Art Nouveau' by Barbara Hammet. It's HUGE! I stitched over 2 on 25 count linen, which made it 14.5 inches by 9.5 inches

It's based on this Aubrey Beardsley painting

Since it's so big, it was hard to get a decent shot so here's a couple of close-ups

This is the skirt, which took forever and used something like two and a half skeins of DMC. Which is good, cause the pattern called for four skeins Shocked

I ripped out the face like four times till I got it right. I like blackwork, but the backstitch in this piece drove me nuts! I'm pretty sure that I place a lot of it wrong, but it looks okay to me so I'm leaving it  Tongue

Thanks for looking!

I received on Tuesday.It was just what I needed after 2hrs of English and 1hr of maths! Since Velvet Rose and I are both in Australia, and it's spring here, we decided to change the theme slightly, and swap spring themed stuff, rather then autumn.

I wonder what's inside?

Two Rapunzel scarves!

Pretty pouch

and inside

Earrings and a bracelet!


Thank you so much Velvet Rose! This has been a totally awesome first swap! And thank you DopDeadSuzie for organising and partnering me up with such a great partner
