Lately, I´ve been developing a certain fondness
for things colourful and shiny - favourably in
connection with stitch...
Might be the cold grey season coming, or me being
a capricorn, who are prone to (at least that´s what
I´ve been reading once, in a horoscope book) to drop
some of their natural austerity when life´s autumn
approaches for a weak spot for bling-bling...













However, that´s why I bought some sari scraps...




































Look at that tough little bead, hanging on, as the
last of it´s kind, on a vast expanse - for a bead - of
border...

all beautiful but especially that peacock. my mom and dad always had a huge framed, embroidered, peacock over their bed that someone had given them as a wedding gift. a peacock always brings back that memory.

Yes, I enjoy them - not sure yet whether I´ll have the heart to cut them further... - + I like your story, Deanna, can almost imagine that peacock, hanging above a headbord somewhere halfway around the globe, while looking at mine, which came all the way from India...

ger,
I was looking through old pics yesterday and actually found a picture of that embroidered peacock. My mom and dad are gone and I can't remember what happened to that framed piece.

ger hat gesagt…

It lives in your memory (+ in mine now, too, for a beat of the wings...)

What beautiful Sari "scraps".
The beading and stitching on that peacock is so fine. Lucky you!

Fun eye cloth. Sometimes I find I have to walk away from a project for a while then come back with a "new
prospective". :)

Yes, Marie - looking ahead while looking back...;)
