Ready for a cross stitch challenge?

I was just talking to Robin on the phone and we have come up with a great idea.......let's have a cross stitch challenge.

http://www.birdcrossstitch.com/CrossStitch/guide2.html Fina the bird section. Jenny Rasmussen is the designer....now scroll down and you will see that there are a couple of bird designs that are real prim. If you have trouble finding them, email me at robyn.regan@hotmail.com and I will send you the pattern.

The rules are:

Must use this peacock somewhere in your design.

Sign up here to join and link it to your blog.

Must have a finished piece done in 2 weeks.

This will be fun to see everyone's creativity. Oh and check out http://www.birdcrossstitch.com/ and there are heaps of things for free there....and blank charts to use.

Anyone can do this...I have just started cross stitching a couple of weeks ago. I am using an 18 count aida.....I wish I could use the 30 count linen I bought...can't see that good!!!!!!

Hi, is the pattern the one with the two peacocks and the basket in the middle? Just wanted to make sure I was looking at the right one. This is a great idea!!! Thanks so much for thinking of this.

Oh Robby I sure wish I had time to do this...I'm barely finding time to do anything these days...i do miss out on lots of things with this schedule....even though I love it.
Sort of a bitter sweet thingy going on here.

I'll enter! I was just using part of this pattern earlier in the week. I used the peacock and added some elements from some historical Pennsylvania samplers to create a little pinkeep.
