Peacock Duchess Set finished.

About six years ago I bought this duchess set on eBay. One of the doilies had been completed, but nothing else had been stitched, and as there was no instructions with it, I had to figure out for myself what colours and stitches to use. I've been working on it all this time, a few minute here and there, but today I decided I would finish it for once and for all. I was on volunteer duty at the Guild, so I had uninterrupted time to work on it. When I got home, I soaked it in Napisan for a couple of hours, dried it with a towel, and pressed it. Voila! Isn't it gorgeous, even if I do say so myself ;-)


This photo is a bit washed out. I took two - one with flash and one without flash. The other pic is on my Peacocks blog here.
