Teal Aqua Turquoise Round Robin
~ PJ's block ~
added the peacock and seam treatment to it's left.  I enjoyed making this peacock and learned a lot.

here is a closeup

I used metalic thread, regular DMC thread, and seed beads for this project.  
I started by drawing the bird with chalk, then outlining the shape using a stem stitch.  For the feathers, I added a row of dark green French knots, with a row of metalic white french knots, and a seed bead.
The "hair" along the stem of the feather was made with straight stitch using a metalic rayon type thread.
