As you most probably know I won Edgar
's prize draw for his 1st year blogiversary and he sent me this most wonderful gift package containing one of his beautiful Pyn Keepes and, as both he and I love Quaker themes, he had no difficulty in choosing what to stitch! It's so beautifully stitched and finished. He also enclosed two pieces of fabric (used as a background for the photo), a box of delicious looking chocolates, a bundle of black and white ribbons and braids and a cute chihuahua card. And ... yes ... it is ... my very own Bowl of Destiny! Well to be more precise it's a Cup of Destiny but who's arguing over a handle?
Look at the front of the Pyn Keepe - such neat and precise stitching. The fabric is a 32ct Vintage Autumn and the thread Soie d'Alger.
And now for the back. A pretty co-ordinating fabric and trim to finish off.
Thank you so much Edgar - I love it all!
Thanks again for the return visit
