I know, I know....

I keep on posting and I'm supposed to be finished posting for the weekend :) BUT....
it's just a few minutes before I step out the door and I received the sweetest e-mail from dear Susan telling me she's received my Frosty Friends Exchange for the SBEBB! And I must share it with you ~ my dear readers!
Desinger/Design: Little House Needleworks - Diane Williams - Winter Wonderland elements
Fabric: 32 Ct. Raw Linen
Fibers: Crescent Colours and DMC as called for
Finished as: Pinkeep
I really like how this one turned out....I've been experimenting with placing the pins in different numbers/arrangements around the pinkeep (hence my blurry top picture) and I really liked how this one turned out...I thought it looked like clusters of snowflakes.
Anyway...well....I guess that's it for today, not much stitching went on yesterday :( but I did start my SBEBB Winter House Exchange...and I've got an idea and a new tutorial planned...we'll see if it works out.....
Until Next time....stay warm and stitch like there's a sunny tomorrow!

  12. Well, girl you astonish me again. That is just beautiful. I have never seen a pinkeep other than on the blogs. Will have to try that one day.
    Nothing like having your body parts squished to make a girl feel special.
    Your Cirque is coming along beautifully. I still think you are insane for stitching over 1 on black.
