SBEBB Harvest Exchange for Paula

I know I've posted about every day this week, and I'm sorry to clog your readers....but I want to share this exchange that I've been biting my nails over for the past two weeks. Paula just sent me an e-mail to let me know that she received the exchange! Hurray! I was VERY worried.... Anyway, I made her (of course - it's a sickness) a pinkeep (are you bored yet with me?!), but the design I chose just screamed pinkeep. Here it is:


Front and Back

Designer: Trilogy ~ Autumn Spots

I didn't have pins that looked totally fabulous with the design so I made my own using seed beads/glass beads and straight pins. I thought it turned out pretty OK. I sure do hope that Paula likes it.....I'm unsure if she likes it or not.

Alrighty then, that's it for me today....tomorrow is CdC day with the Snowbird's SAL....so no posts from me until Friday to show my update on it. Wish me luck!

Thank you for all your kind comments on the Busy Needle Pinkeep....I've looked at it all day! It has brought me that much joy :) So I guess I'm glad I was hoggish and kept it for myself. You know I think it is the only small I've got that I actually made myself?!

Until Friday, may you stitch with dancing fingers! HUGS!

  7. That's a lovely exchange. I'm sure the receiver must love it!

    I had thought about using beads on one of my pinkeeps as well. Yours turned out nicely! I think it would be neat to use square or some other shape beads on the right piece!

  25. I love the pinkeep! Looking at your pinkeeps is never boring, it's what keeps me going on my designs. Thanks for all the inspiration! Great idea with the pins, I have been having trouble finding pearl head pins of any colour or description, so this might just be my solution. Thanks!
