This pinkeep I recently sent to Yuko
- it was a very very belated birthday gift together with a few extras - I am such a bad friend! I have heard from her to say that she has now received it. The pattern is by CA Wells and is part of a set called 'Hearts and Flowers Accessories' from the Sampler & Antique Needlework - A Year in Stitches book (1984). It is stitched on 35ct white Brussels linen with the recommended DMC threads. I tried a different finishing this time by using a narrow white silk ribbon to join the edges and was quite pleased with the result. I am so glad that Yuko likes it.
Although we were forecast snow last night it didn't happen although it's trying very hard. It's extremely cold and the rest of the county seems to have been hit. I am staying indoors and I am about to settle down to stitch Sew in Love.
Have a good weekend - I know I will as it's my birthday tomorrow - I am 'over twenty-one'!
