the mock turtle
I am a wife & stay at home mum to 2 kidlets. I love to make lots of different things & I recently took up knitting! I think some of my favourite crafts are hand crafts, I especially enjoy paper piecing & embroidery, but I will give most things a try.
I started my blog, pigeon pair, a few years ago to document a family trip overseas, but since then it has developed into a craft blog & as a bonus it gives in an impetus to actually finish project that I start!
About my square…
My square combines hand embroidery with needle turn applique, two techniques that I really enjoy. Most of the embroidery was done with a single strand of floss so I could create the small detail.
My piece is based on an illustration of Alice & The Mock Turtle by Mabel Lucie Attwell & is from my favourite book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
