My friend Erica and I went camping years ago. As we were sitting in the tent we could hear some pigeons. Erica told me how, when she was at school, her friend said that whenever she heard a pigeon cooing it sounded like it was saying 'my toe hurts Betty, my toe' over and over again. Erica said that from that moment on every time she heard a pigeon she thought the same thing. For years she has heard pigeons complaining about their toes hurting and who the heck is Betty?
Obviously I can't help hearing the same thing every time I hear a pigeon. Next time you hear one I reckon you'll get it too  Wink
Anyway, I stitched this up for her birthday. She's quite creative as well, so I just left it as small panel for her to use as she pleases.

So cute, and as you share the joke, I know she loves it too. Great work, and it is very pretty. I love the leaves as well.

Hi there FrankSpinello  Cheesy! This is so funny! What a wonderfully thoughtful gift for your friend. I'll have to listen to the pigeons next time I'm out! (I'm wondering though, if pigeons in the states complain about different things  Cheesy)
Nice to "see" you! Happy Holidays!!

My boyfriend's dad always says he thinks wood pigeons are saying "My poor toe, Betty"! I've never heard anything like it from anyone else- until now!

That's awesome, great job Smiley
