Crocheted peacocks.

I've had these for a while, but hadn't got around to posting a photo because they were too hard to photograph. I had to find a dark background, and when I re-discovered them tonight while searching for something else, I had a brainwave - thrown them on the floor - the carpet is dark enough! The lady who sold me these, has an eBay site, and she knows how much I love Peacocks, so she emails me whenever she finds something I might like. She contacted me tonight about some new finds, and it reminded me that I hadn't posted a photo here of her last sale to me. If you are reading this Robyn - thanks again for keeping me in mind!

A new piece for my collection!

Nicki Lee commented on my last post, asking about the pattern for the bookmark. I was happy to post it to her, and she has responded by sending me this lovely piece of vintage embroidery which she found in an antique shop. Thank you so much, Nicki!
