Manor at Peacock Hill

  Once the hill is stitched I'll be on the home stretch of this design.


I loved stitching this peacock.  


My great-grandparents, Fred and Elsie Cornaby lived in Benjamin, Utah.  My fondest memories of visiting them included their Koi pond, the colorful hollyhocks lining the lane to their home and their beautiful peacocks.  Stitching this piece has made me very happy.

beautiful piece Cari - I was very drawn to this piece but so far have resisted. I'm very sorry to hear about your loss of your garden kitty. Mel

A wonderful piece. And it's always great when you can get down memory lane while stitching on a certain piece.

I want to be just like you Cari! Although I don't recall Grandmother Elsie, I love to hear you and Miss Smarty talk about her place, the hollyhocks and peacocks! I absolutely love this piece! XOXO
