This is my second kit from Paraffle. Again, it arrived really quickly and had everything needed to get started right away. The peacock is very intricate and therefore it is taking me longer to finish. Iâ€™m delighted with the results so far. I think the gold thread is really effective. My daughter loved her gift of my first attempt which was the pineapple cushion and Iâ€™m sure my younger daughter will love the peacock cushion when I surprise her with it.
