Goldwork peacock - Part 4

A powerful lightning destroyed most of the electrical appliances in my house and the phone wasn’t working so I couldn’t connect to the internet for weeks.Everything is restored now.
Today, I would like to show you the progress of my goldwork peacock embroidery.

The leg is also worked with stem stitch filling using pearl cotton no:8 thread.

For the wing feathers, I’d alternated smooth purl and check purl.

I’d outlined it with pieces of smooth purl in stem stitch and outline stitch.

 In the end, this is how the wing looks like.
