I have to tell you that the picture does not do this beautiful pinkeep justice, the colours are exquisite and the stitching, oh my! Nan stitched her design on 32 count antiqued linen, the delicacy of the stitches is quite amazing. And look at the edges!
Perfect little cross stitches all around the edge of the pinkeep, so lovely! If you are not familiar with Nan's work or her designs, please pay her a visit at her blog www.threadworkprimitives.blogspot.com and at her Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/threadworkprimitives. She has wonderful finished items as well as her beautiful patterns for sale for all you stitchers out there. Thanks so much Nan, I will treasure your pinkeep always.
My last post was about the challenges that I've commited to over at Cloth Doll Artistry and also at Ravenwood Whimzies. I'm going to combine one of the CDA challenges with Wendy's Spring Doll challenge and have started on that doll. Here's a peek:
Hee-hee, that's all your getting right now. Wish I could show you more but I put my back out when I bent over to wash my feet in the shower a couple of days ago (sad but true!) and so my sitting and stuffing time has been curtailed significantly. Fortunately the combined effects of Voltaren emulgel and ASA have worked their magic so it is already starting to feel better, thank goodness! And it had better stay feeling better as not only do I have a lot of items to make and stuff but we are about to start on the destruction and re-construction of our back deck and I will need a strong and healthy back for that particular endeavour! DH will be home later today and then will be off work until the 28th so there will be much
Since I probably won't be back for a few days here in Blogland as we work on the deck, have a great weekend everyone and I'll update you on the doll and the deck in a few. Wish us luck!
