This was really intense and fun to do. The detail required concentration but the beauty of it made it worth it. It was really eye-popping the more gold back stitch you did on the dragonfly. I’ve never worked with Kreinik and found watching Dana’s tutorial beforehand helpful. The pattern around the dragonfly was easier than it looks because it is a mirror image from side to side. I’ve posted a picture of my finished piece on the P&F Facebook page.
One thing I came away with is that if I’m a stitch off with a color, Hey!! I’m the artist here and no one else will know!!

Haha you’ve got that right Susan, even I as the designer wouldn’t know if you were a stitch off…. So glad you enjoyed the pattern, it looks fantastic! 🙂

I have had my eye on this pattern for awhile now, it will be perfect for my niece’s graduation gift,
it has her name all over it and the black friday deals gave me the kick in the pants I needed to
order it. Have nothing but good things to say about Peacock and Fig. Thank you Dana for the
wonderful and unique patterns you offer.
