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.

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.
