    You don't have to be a peacock lover to admire this. The workmanship is superb.

    Was this a pattern from Aunt Martha's? I have one of hers (two actually) and it looks identical. Never thought of beading it...and after one thought...not happening! Yours is stunning!!!!

    dry cleaner would not touch it so I turned it

    has been washed many times with no problems.
    each section is hand tied down.

    I believe it was Aunt Martha's.
    I had always wanted to incorporate beads
    with the embroidery I'd grown up with
    and this was the result.

    Wow, this is absolutely stunning and who ever see you wearing it is going to want one. If you really enjoy creating one of a kind pieces of wearable art you could have a very profitable future.

    check ebay online
    I usually find mine at estate sales.
    you could check with craft stores that still carry Aunt Martha's
    they may still produce it.

    I too love embroidery, hence the quilt that I have pictured here. It too, took three years to finish it. You did really excellent work. JO

    I think the Iron on transfer is still available. I got mine at either Walmart or Alco. I know you can get them on ebay also.
