Turtle Dove

Our little Quilty Girls group meet together and are working our way through the 12 days of Christmas, reckoning if we do one a month we should have the set finished by next Christmas.
This is Day 2: Turtle Dove.
I'm not really much of a hand stitcher, but I'm enjoying this project.  Only ten to go...

Made from wool felt, the idea is to make a heritage set for our children/grandchildren, however my lot don't go for this kind of thing so this is for me.

This is lovely Carol. I like the colours you have chosen. With the work you are putting in to it, it will be nice to keep it for yourself.

Really lovely. Are you making exactly the pieces from the song? As in are you making two of the doves or one is just representing all? Either way, that's a whole lotta work. I can't wait to see the rest. [Bunny]
