The lovely Leonie has done an amazing job of pattern testing for me. As a way of saying thank you, I offered to design a pattern for her. At the time I had just finished my 12th NZ bird block and had proudly announced that it was my final block in the series, so I smiled when a very polite email arrived asking if I would maybe possibly mind doing just one more NZ bird...
How could I refuse!!
Let me present the Karearea otherwise known as the New Zealand Falcon:
Leonie. Here is her version of the block:
I was thrilled to have Fiona of Celtic Thistle Stiches test the block too and had to laugh that her local rugby team is the Falcons. She intends to make up a falcon cushion and give it to her rugby mad family - I hope they don't mind that technically this Falcon is an All Black (hee hee!)
Here's Leonie's reaction when I sent her the pattern:
Oh man - how much do I love you??
you my dearest are just the bestest!
- totally worth it don't you think?!?!
The Falcon pattern is now available from my Craftsy store. As usual it will be free for a limited time and then I will add a nominal charge.
