The peacock is closed in with different colors and stitches. It was not easy getting the little feathers incorporated in a nice way. Hence my remark to never make it again! I am still not satified whit the photo, the color still is off. I tried to play with various tecniques with the camera, whitebalance and stuff, but i can't get it right. Even the photos i took outside didn't bring out the real color. Grmbl!
I embellished the dahlia with chainstitches, because i thought it was dull. It got the artistic fire burning, and my butterflies were victim to my flow too.
