A Bold and Beautiful Peacock

I asked my friend Carol what her favorite bird was. I’m sure she knew why I was asking, given my penchant for my felt birds. She said, “A Robin for what it represents, but I should say a Peacock!.” She should know me well enough by now that I could not let that pass.

So I designed a peacock – a bird as bold and beautiful as Carol. I gave this to her at her surprise birthday party last night along with the Robin, too.

So in honor of Carol, here’s a felt Peacock.

    Magnificent! I just wrote to you to ask for a peacock and then saw the “search” box. Found this fabulous pattern. Thank you for designing it and I will make it immediately.
    We moved to our home in the forest filled with peacocks on Dec 23, 2002, 12 years ago today and I noticed the date on the pattern is for Dec 23rd as well. ♥

    LOL I just saw the date on my comment and forgot that it is the 23rd here and the 22nd for you up over. 🙂 Funny thing is that we also celebrate the 22nd. My husband gave me my engagement ring on Dec 22, 1966. Another special date for this peacock. Our first peacock came from the forest on the morning of our 35th wedding anniversary (11.5 years ago) and adopted us immediately. We have 20 living with us full time and never wander far away. Quite the characters and have distinct personalities. ♥

      A wild peacock! Now, that’s something you don’t find in Maine! It sounds as if they are a bit more common where you live in Australia.
