    I have a son that is raising peacocks and has several eggs in an incubator, plus new hatched ones. The last few weeks there have been pictures of Esther the Chicken. I completely changed the picture, made a peacock instead, altered the size & basket, and with filling, puffed out the eggs & basket. The panel is off-white silk dupioni. Didn't purchase one thing for this, used all my scraps...even the basket is scraps from a priest's vestment I made.

    Thanks for sharing, is there something in someone's woodpile to cause all these feathered creatures to lay eggs and in time for Easter?

    Priscilla is actually a peahen. She is adorable - but a cock she is not! Unfortunately it's the guys that get to wear the fancy feathers.

    I know that she is a peahen and the males don't lay eggs. We also used to have peacocks and the male had the most gorgous huge tail. But, I couldn't applique the peahen because it wouldn't be that colorful and would look just like another chicken. So...it is a suppose hen peacock, I guess. I told my dh that someone would make a comment about it being a male.

    Love Priscilla. Your son might just come and kidnap her.

    Luck to him raising them, I remember them well. Big bags of Purina Turkey Chow scattered about while they fought over a bug, screaming like a woman being tortured in the middle of the night while they ran like mad on top of the roof, eating my garden but only the more difficult things to grow.

    But when they strut their stuff, I'll admit they are simply the most lovely creatures alive!!!

    This is the time of gene splicing, but this is a decoration and if you want to call it Pete or Pricilla, it's your quilt and you can call her/it anything you want.

    It's sure a pretty decoration and I wish I could do one that looks like that.
