But I LOVE the tail! What a clever combination of motifs to give it that beautiful shape. I find there is a bit too much contrast in the colours of that variegated and it distracts from the nice shapes in the tail but I thought the blues and greens would be suitable for peacock feathers. I know which thread I'm going to use for my next try.
Anyway, here he is:
Motif no.20 of 25-motif challenge
I missed quite a few joins in the tail and got his legs wrong too! But I'm glad I've worked through the whole pattern once and now know where I will make changes for the next time.
I also have to tell you that for the tail, I gave up following the written pattern and just went with the picture on the front cover of the book. Frankly, in many places it seemed to me that the written pattern didn't say the same as what the picture showed!
Just to show you the pages of notes I took as I worked the pattern...
And they're written on both sides!
He's pretty neat though, isn't he?
Oh, and guess what? There is a SECOND peacock pattern in the book...
