Peacock Pinkeep progress

Nataly and I decided to do a stitchalong for Blackbird Designs Peacock Pinkeep (before Nataly got overwhelmed by back-to-schools things to do). I started working on it about 2 weeks ago, but have been seriously sidetracked by work for much of that time. Since it's such an easy stitch I did manage to get quite a bit done though, and may be able to finish it up this weekend. The alphabet band section is finished
Now I'm working on the peacock that goes on the top part


I haven't decided yet whether to do the needle book that's included. Although it has a peacock's head it uses completely different colors. I found a Shaker box in my stash (is anyone surprised?) that I might use to display it until I'm ready to tackle their assembly instructions later.

Nataly decided to do hers in actual peacock colors, instead of the unusual colors it calls for. Can't wait to see what that looks like (hint, hint, Nataly!)

Why don't some of you post some pictures of what you're working on?

It looks great! I thought I had this pattern in my stash, but this evening when I went looking for it, I found that I have one similar. I have a pinkeep called Netty's Sampler Pinkeep Drum designed by Stacy Nash Primities. It is so similar, has the peacock, and the alphabet. I think I will start it this weekend.
