Peace Parrots Completed

Yesterday I completed Peace Parrots at the Palm. This amazing pillow is now available in my Etsy shop.

I started work on this pillow when the protests began in Tahrir Square, Cairo. During that tense period CNN captured my attention almost totally. I did manage to spend some time in the craft room, however. One day I was rummaging through my stash of odds-n-ends beads, buttons and charms when I found a tiny metal peace charm. How appropriate, I thought, to add a symbol of peace to my current project. And that is how Peace Parrots at the Palm got its name.

In the same vein as the Stunning Mrs. Peacock, Parrots is a very detailed, hand-beaded pillow. Hours of work resulting in a spectacular one-of-a-kind treasure!
