Back to the peacock.

 I was determined to spend this weekend working on my white peacock and, I did!!  First job was stitch on the wings, which took a surprising amount of time, due to the shape and density of the bird.  Then it was time to work on the tail feathers.  After several experiments of stitching them together, I found a method that gave me the look I was aiming for.  Many hours later, and tra-lah!
 They are just pinned in place on the bird at the moment, as I had to get ready to go out and help my friend celebrate his 100th birthday.
