A Little Bluebird

This is the surprise RAK gift I had been working on last month.  I wanted to send a little gift over to BeckySC to help bring some joy to her during this time .  Some of her family are going through a rough time at the moment and Becky is devoting all her time to looking after them.  I wrote in her card that I wanted this little "bluebird of happiness" to bring some joy into her life at this time and let her know that her friends are thinking of her. 
Becky is truly a wonderful giving person and she has been so friendly and giving to me this year that I have always wanted to make her something from the heart as a thank you, as soon as I saw this little design I just knew I had to stitch it for her.

(Angled shot to highlight and show ricrac detail and buttons)

Designer - Gazette 94
Stitched on 32ct cream evenweave using DMC
Finished as a pillow

I found the perfect backing fabric for it that had little bluebirds on it flying around.
Becky I'm soo pleased that you love it.

Here is an updated photo of my Lizzie Kate Green flip its.  I have actually just finished another square to but havent managed to take a picture yet.  Only two more squares to go and the border and its all done.

I have also started work on a replacement piece for the exchange that has gone missing.  My partner has checked at her local post office and still nothing has turned up.
Until next time, happy stitching

What a beautiful and very thoughtful gift for Becky. I am sure that it would have brightened her day. Nice work on your LK piece.

I have a similar problem with and exchange as well. It's been a month since I have posted it and I have heard nothing from my partner. I hope that it hasn't been lost either.
