The Peacock. 11/25 motif challenge


Hi,
Its very cold here and a cold wind from the north pole blowing,  but at least its dry, we had some snow during the week,  but it did not last, hopefully that will be all we get.  We have some forecasted for Monday and Tuesday,  hopefully it will either miss us or it wont last.
As promised here is my peacock from the book, Occhi Schiffchenspitze Frivolite, it has taken me days to find the right light to get the perfect picture.   He is tatted in no 20 Lizbeth thread called Country Side,  he was a pain, perhaps because I had flu when I was tatting him,  it made it harder.   His pattern is in German, but he learnt a whole lot of English words that are not in the English Oxford Directory.    Vernon said after I finished him that he's a one off, I don't think his ears could take much more of what I thought of the peacock,  nice as he is,   I cant see me doing him again,  I am going to frame him when I have found the right piece of card as a backing,  and then he will be finished.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend and keeping warm and safe.
                                   Hugs
                                Margaret

  1. My sweet friend Margaret using words not found in the Oxford English Dictionary? I just can't imagine it! ;-)

    Seriously, it looks lovely! I have the book, but haven't gotten beyond looking at the pattern. I'll be sure to brush up on my salty language before starting it!

  3. Oh He is beautiful, I have always wanted try this pattern but seem afraid of it for some reason, it is lovely and the things on top of his head are plums of feathers, I think he looks so real. We have historical places that we visit in our area and those birds walk around all the time, so tempting to want to chase one a pull a feather :)

  7. Great job on the peacock! I have this book as well, and have studied the pattern but never attempted it because it looks so complicated. I can't believe you tatted this while sick with the flu!

  10. Nice work. And how patient to tat something like this when you're down with the flu! It's cold, blowy and snowy here today with many closures due to the storm. Stay warm.
