I have finally finished my peacock fire screen. He isn’t quite as I had planned, but then I didn’t think it through properly before I started.

The feathers are sewn to a backing piece of felt, because they tended to move sideways, and to swivel in their sockets. That piece is braced with dowelling and covered with another piece of felt, to keep it tidy.

His name is Pugin, and he has featured in the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading’s blog post, Crafty Editors.

You wouldn’t believe how many people have asked me why I don’t call him Penelope. Because he is a peacock. Ah!
