Pinkeep Received

This is the beautiful spring pinkeep that I received from Irmeli (HOE).

A Current Project

This is a piece I'm working on at present. It's "P'tits Coeurs Bienvenue," by Isabelle Vautier, stitched on linen with Tentakulum overdyed thread "Lisa." I received the linen, chart, and thread from Gaby as part of the HOE biscornu exchange.

Katrina's Pinkeep

This is the front of the pinkeep and the matching scissors fob that I made for Katrina in the Hooked on Exchanging project. It is DMC floss on (about) 32 ct. linen. The chart is a LHN/CCN collaboration from The Gift of Stitching magazine (a back issue). The entire pinkeep is sewn together, not glued, including the ribbon.

Here are the reverse sides:

The initials are taken from a Dover Publications book, Charted Monograms for Counted Cross Stitch.

Mon Poisson d'Avril

This is a picture of the stuffed fish toy that I made for the "Bisque d'Avril" of Chacharose. He is Matsya, the horned fish of (Asian) Indian lore.
