Summer exchange part 1

NZ Post really got their skates on with this one! My summer exchange piece has been received by Su already. I stitched Summer Bird by Bent Creek on 32ct Kiwifruit from Countrystitch, and then attempted my first ever flat fold! I must say it took me ages but I eventually got it done!

There are more piccies on Su's blog, including one of the back - I wasn't sure I did a good job of the back but it's summery at least!
