Peace Parrots at the Palm

For the past few weeks I've been working on a pillow in my "spare time." Usually a pillow project only takes a couple of days from choosing the fabrics to sewing on the last seed bead. This pillow has taken longer as it keeps getting "put on the back burner." I'm getting anxious to have it done, but, in the spirit of the Stunning Mrs. Peacock, I still have many beads to sew into place.

Each pillow I make earns a name as I work. They never begin with a name as I have to "get to know them" first. I knew this pillow would be Parrots but the name expanded as my work continued. Upon completion I'll fill you in on how the expanded name came about.
