About me…
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.

Beautiful use of fabric and floss. It makes me want to find the version of Alice in Wonderland you have.

This is lovely. You represent the Lewis Carroll feel so perfectly, and I love how you use your fabrics and stitch the little shading details!
