For the Birds Exchange

Here is a pretty pinkeep I recieved from Trillium:


Freebie by Berthi Smith-Sanders a Dutch designer


Here is what I stitched for my exchange partner, Lucy:



"Love Letters" by Blackbird Designs
from Joyeux Noel
Fabric:  32ct. opalescent mystery colour by Stitches & Spice
Fibres:  recommend Gentle Art floss
I am super happy with the way this little box turned out!  It was a lot of fun to put together.  I'll definitely do this finish again.  Instead of the word Noel, I used the alphabet from the same BBD book and charted her name to personalize it for Lucy.

Happy Stitching!
