Another pinkeep



I decided to make myself a mattress pinkeep, as I didn't join in the matress pinkeep exchange and this is the design I've done its a freebie by The Workbasket, its stitched 1/1 on 32ct evenweave I had fun doing this one and its another to add to my collection. I've copied sister Helen again for my style of photo, but I think I prefer my normal way of doing them on my blog, somehow they look odd on mine, maybe cos Helens blog is much more 'girly' than mine LOL!!

Talking of 'girly' anyone been watching Ch4 Big Brother this year? I'm addicted already have a long list of the ones I dislike and a shorter list of the ones I like LOL!!!!

This months 'Gift of Stitching' wow isn't it lovely, I can't wait to start on those pinkeeps, I will be as soon as I've finished stitching my SBEBB Summer Quaker Exchange which will hopefully be done by tomorrow.

It's a very pretty pinkeep, such tiny stitches!

I love this month's GoS mag too, so much to make so little time to make it!

This is beautiful. I have had this design printed out for awhile, and it's nice to see it stitched. As always you did a gorgeous job. I agree that this issue of Gift of Stitching is a very nice one!

Su, your finishing skills are seriously in a class of their own. All I can say is, "Wow!" It really is gorgeous. :D

Lovely pinkeep! I think I agree with you about the photo, lol.

I am CRAZY about those pinkeeps in the GoS magazine. The supplies are a bit expensive though - I think $56? Are you going to work out of your own stash of supplies?

Side note -- did you know that you have 91 subscribers on bloglines?!! :)

Your pin keep is lovely and I adore the Lorri Birmingham one you got from Andrea, her designs are just so cute, its definitely my sort of thing that.

Su, it's gorgeous as always. It looks so daintly done over one and the colours are fabulous. You'll have to talk me through this mattress technique as I'd love to do one.

Beautiful pinkeep Su. TGOS is certainly a tempting issue this time, so many things.

Another beautiful creation Su :) Such a good idea to join in the exchange but do something for yourself :)

And yes, I'm addicted to Big Brother already too (pink, pink!) I have to admit it's one of the things I really missed when I was in NZ! :O

I love this wee design and ot looks great how you have finished it. I think your photo is fine too but your editor seems to take the mist in much further than mine does. Super pictures anyway in my opinion :-)) The exchange one (pic) is especially beautiful!

Annemarie said...

Loooove the pinkeep, Su! Love the picture too, but hey, that's just me.
We don't get Channel 4 here, so I don't follow your Big Brother. I am addicted to The Apprentice, though!
