I was browsing around social media when I came across a graphic with a flamingo and a peacock that said, “Admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own.” It really inspired me. No one doubts that a flamingo and peacock are beautiful, but they are beautiful in completely different ways. You can be happy for someone else’s beauty, creativity, parenting skills… whatever it is, without questioning your own. It’s a great reminder to try and be genuinely happy for other people. Unfortunately, I don’t know where the quote originated, and the graphic has been redone many times, otherwise I’d love to give someone credit. I’m sharing my version of it with you in this flamingo and peacock embroidery hoop. I love how it turned out, and I’m excited to give you the free pattern today! This one has some more advanced stitches in it (on the Peacock), but you can leave out some of the detail to make it simpler.
