A pinkeep



Its a friends birthday real soon and I wanted to stitch her a little something as she is a lovely friend to me, so I chose to stitch this pinkeep by Fancy Work from the chart 'A pair of pinkeeps' this one is the Victorian one, its stitched on 32ct white linen and I used my silk threads by Kaalund. I'm going to pop this in the post today so that hopefully it will get to its destination in time.

Oh Su,
I can't believe it. This beautiful pinkeep is mine. It's here, at my side as I write this and I have to say, it is even more beautiful close up. The finishing is so neat and the red cording is silky soft and such a rich deep red. The pins are a delicate pistachio green...hmmm, gorgeous! I can't ever thank you enough. I will treasure it.
Hugs, Angela
