About

The "something" hidden that captivates me...

I’m Darcilla of Peacocks and Purls, and the story behind my shop name is…
That sheep and knitting make me warm and fuzzy; and they remind me of being on my grandfather’s farm, with lots of different barnyard animals, from sheep, horses, pigs, chickens and peacocks. I loved chasing the peacocks and trying to collect all their feathers to create things with them, while spending an afternoon with my grandmother, learning how to knit…. so with brainstorming help from my husband, I decided on the name Peacocks and Purls because I’m a knitter who grew up loving to hang out with my grandparents “knitting” the sheep and chasing the peacocks….both soft and warm and very beautiful….Peacocks and Purls… P U R L S – because a knitter who knits, must also purl all the warm and fuzzy things!

I also come from a large family of artists ~ from painters and potters to fashion and garden designers. I am inspired by the "something" hidden, the softness of an fiber, a color, or expression ~ this makes my soul leap with creative ideas....
I love the magic that happens when a thought or vision in my mind becomes a reality, touchable in my hands, either in a piece of jewelry, artwork or fiber project ~ its the life creating part of a thought that drives me to create. The dream from my mind that I can now hold in my hand and present to you... the whimsy and wonder that is me...

I love diving into a large pile of books from the library on knitting, painting, sewing, gardening, farming, cooking...I'll have a large cup of tea and snuggle in....I enjoy knitting with the vast array of animal fibers....when I visited Ireland ~ I wanted to sit and knit the sheep as they grazed in the fields...they are so fuzzy! I'm awe inspired when I see old buildings or beautiful landscapes and it creates an urgent need to sit and paint what God has placed before my eyes....I have so many interests...from jewelry making and polishing my own stones to wood carving....

I opened my Etsy shop... PeacocksandPurls because I have so much I'd like to create and want to be able to share that something with all of you....

Please enjoy my shop! Enjoy my passions...and why not drop by for a visit on my Facebook page or Instagram... www.facebook.com/peacocksandpurls and find out what I'm up to next....
Love in Christ~
