    I've searched high and low to find a stamped cross stitch kit of a India Blue Peacock. Anyone have any ideas? It has to be stamped on the fabric not a counted cross stitch. Thanks in advance.

    I found a pretty stamped cross-stitch a couple of years ago at Michael's crafts. If you like needlepoint, there are some super-nice patterns and ideas. There are beautiful eye feathers, complete birds, crested heads. A good shop with catalogs should be able to help you. The needlepoint also comes in pillows, ornaments, evening bags (with interchangeable pattern flaps) and all sorts of other ideas. Some of the patterns are just outstanding. Good luck, and let us know what you find.

    I found this a couple of years ago at Michael's. It worked up a LOT nicer than the photo. If you've photographed cross-stitch, you know how impossible it is to do justice to the work. My only change to the pattern was that there were too many varying shades of blue in the sky that really didn't need to be there, so I amended that. This piece is counted.
