Daffy's Stitchy Friends

A partial row

It has been a while since I've worked on the peacocks. Isn't that sad? I've been stitching for exchanges and freebie models...but in between I have done a little bit on Peacock Cypher. The glass peacock bead goes where the blank spot is in the middle near the bottom row.

I love the over one stitches on this design...it's the lettering...plus I love how all the letters are a different font; Just Nan is so clever! I'm not sure what kind of fabric this is but there are things I like and dislike about it. I like that it holds the over one stitches well; threads slip under very little. I don't like it's slightly stretchy feel. I also find the needle splits the fabric very easily so I'm often having to back out and restitch. However, it is a pretty fabric and the color is much nicer in real life.
