Pictures

I promised pictures of the pinkeep I'm working on and of the new goodies I got yesterday. So here they are!

Here is what I have completed up until now on the stitched part of the pinkeep I'm making for the Monthly Finishing Challenge:


And this is the fun mail I got yesterday. It's a CCN design, all the hand-dyed fibers I need to complete it, and 3 specialty threads that I need to complete another CCN chart and a LHN chart I already had.


I love this chart! The colors are so sweet and romantic and the poem is lovely. I want to finish it and frame it. I hope my husband won't think it's too feminine to put up on our walls :)

You're really coming along with your pinkeep challenge - what a cute design. Congratulations on your new stash. It's amazing how it multipies, kind of like rabbits!

Love the colors of your soon-to-be pinkeep. Yummy stash :)

I have that LHN chart as well - it was one of the ones I picked up to have on hand as a housewarming gift when I needed to make one. I almost stitched that one for friends of ours, but I ended up picking one from Blue Ribbon Designs instead. But that is such a sweet chart, I'm going to have to stitch it for someone!

that is going to make a really cute pinkeep :) I doing the monthly challenges too .. hope to get my pinkeep done this weekend .. the stitching is done .. I just have to put it together.

thanks for visiting my blog :) I'm not very good at rotating my stitching, but I'm trying .. somehow it really feels like you are getting more done .. and if you are working on any larger designs, rotating with a smaller one helps one not get too bored! lol

Enjoy the week and blessings on Sunday.

Hi Kim,

I love that CCN design. I almost started it the other day, but chose Sampler Girl. I love the colors and the saying - it's just a very sweet design. Your pinkeep your working on is beautiful and the fabric you chose for it is perfect! :)
