"Down Briarside Lane, Purple Peacocks are Proud of Their Plumes."
Another project that will be in my book (available next month in my shop). I had such a fun time making this one and I'm so loving the colors. There are no rules with Folk Art. It's suppose to be fun, not fussy, so if you want purple peacocks, you can have them! :) :) :)
The borders in all these project are hand stitched in a primitive style stitch with Valdani 3 strand, colorfast floss.
This project was completely inspired by my friend and one of my most favorite artists, Jeri Landers, of Hopalong Hollow. You see Jeri has two peacocks that live at the hollow. She calls them "The Peabody Boys."
Here they are on the gate while Jeri stands in the garden. Jeri's husband, James, took this photo and I think it is just so magical! I love it! I also love the bunnies cut into the gate!
I know you will truly enjoy visiting with Jeri and all the critters in the Hollow, so hop over and visit. Tell her we said hello!
Have a fun and inspiring day.
