Hi I have dabbled in embroidery and cross stitch for years but have so many unfinished projects dotted around! However this is my first completed piece for a while and I thought I would share as I am a newbie on these forums! Currently unframed so excuse the picture!

This is wonderful! The peacocks in the colors you chose remind me of distelfinks!
