Threading Your Needle With Paper

Here's an nifty trick on threading your tapestry needle. Just cut out a piece of paper around two inches long and a quarter inch wide. Fold it in half cross wise and insert your thread inside paper. Then put the paper through the eye of the needle. Pull the paper to get the thread through and you have just threaded your needle. You can keep your threader for more uses and it's very easy to make.

Do you wanna see my Peacocks?

Here's the finished outcome of DMC's Peacock Courtship. I find it odd though that a peacock would court another peacock. Maybe it's a show off contest between the two of them. Anyway, here's the finish.
