A puffin for my parents

This March my parents both turn fifty. Being an impoverished artist, I decided to make their present. As they’re both wildlife lovers and I particularly enjoy embroidering birds, I decided on a puffin, which is a bird they met in the Scottish Highland a few years ago (Dad got some cracking pictures!)
My puffin isn’t quite as bright and breathtaking, but is hopefully just as cute! It’s embroidered on a doily given to me by my Grannie (my Mum’s mum), which I think makes it more meaningful. Next stop is getting it framed.
I’m really looking forward to the fiftieth birthday celebrations next Saturday; it’s sure to be quite a do!
