I collect old pincushions, so this one was rather fun to create. Penny
the Peahen measures approximately 5 ½ inches in diameter and is
approximately 8 1/2 inches in height. Her nest is made from a collection
of my favorite calico fabrics, and she is made from a coordinating
calico fabric. She has hand-charcoaled eyes with little black beads for
her pupils. Her head dress is made from rushy wire. She wears a rusty
wire necklace decorated with a mini spool of thread and some of my
antique mother-of-pearl buttons. Scattered about her nest is an antique
bobbin and a few sewing notions. A simply primitive, functional item,
bound to be on every collector’s wish list.
This little peahen is an original Fiddlestix Design and comes to you signed and dated, by me, the original designer.
