The Pigeon has landed

Photobucket


Hooray the pigeon landed in the USA safe and sound and at Nancys' door today -
it even left her a couple of feathers from its journey (Just kidding the feathers are from Marks pheasants)

As I said in the previous post we were doing a redwork exchange and I know I know that the Mary Garry piece isn't strictly redwork, I just couldn't resist including it.

The hearts I have so admired when I've seen them on the French blogs I just wanted to give one a try, so Nancy got the first one I had ever made - they are so fun to do and I wanted to cover it in the fabrics that I used on the pinkeep and Mary Garry piece.

The pinkeep is a L'R de rien design and I stitched it on an unknown count of linen I think it may have been 30ct I'm not quite sure.

Its taken a week to get to her which isn't bad as it arrived a day after Nancys did to me (pics in the below posting of her wonderful exchange)
We have agreed to stitch another exchange this time for Christmas and it will be so much fun I know.
I posted Beckys exchange out this evening so if the post is the same she should get it next week (fingers crossed). I've yet to hear that Susans wish piece has arrived to her, I posted it at the same time as Nancy's so it should be there any day now.

Absolutely gorgeous Su! I love the bird pinkeep and the heart is very sweet - think I'll have to have a go at one of these myself.

Gorgeous photos Su, but I have the real thing! Your gifts are exquisite, and I love them all. I'm so excited about doing a Christmas exchange. Thanks so much for everything.

Oooh, Su,
Your gift to Nancy is gorgeous. Another one of those pretty thread holders and it looks really lovely and totally different in red! I love these pretty homespun fabrics and also love the MG design. Funnily enough I was just looking at some of those hearts last night. They were on a French blog in lilac and they really make a special gift .The little initial finishes it off perfectly :>)
A successful exchange all round!
Hugs, Angela

Gorgeous things, as always, Su! I love the little bird and the heart is so pretty - what a clever idea to put feathers in it! I have a little collection of feathers myself, but would never have thought to use them this way....beautiful things! :-)
