I work in an opportunity shop in Eltham, one day a week. Today this scarf was in a box of donated clothes, and the manager brought it out to show me. Talk about being in the right place at the right time! I'm sure if I hadn't been there today, and the scarf had been put out on the shelves, it would have been snapped up by a customer!

I hope my readers understand that the reason I haven't posted anything on here for so long is simply because I haven't found any more embroidered peacocks since I last posted. I still haven't, but I just wanted to tell you something....I've been invited by the Embroiderers Guild (Vic) to give a talk about my Peacocks collection! It will be at their monthly meeting in June. I've been wanting for a long time to do a talk about this particular facet of my linen collection, and here is my chance! Now I have to decide which items to take along to display, as I won't be able to fit them all in. I'll have about 40 minutes to present my talk, and there are large display boards where the embroideries can be pinned up. Once I've made up my mind, I'll do another post here to show you what I'll be taking.
