"" Moments with Moreen: My first pinkeep

My first pinkeep

I cross stitched this piece just after Christmas and have been longing to make it up. I had never made a pinkeep before and I was a little hesitant about starting. For a first attempt I am quite pleased with the result and hopefully my next one will not take me so long to start, and be a little quicker to make up now I have more idea of what I'm doing.

The chart is CoeurAuxPaons and is a free design from Carinne found here

I stitched it 1 over 1 on 32ct belfast linen using DMC 498.

Here is the front and back of the pinkeep.






I can't wait to start making up my other stitched pieces now that I have at last made the effort.

Beautiful Mum :) So glad that you gave us a 'crafty' gene, I don't know what I would do with myself if you hadn't passed it on to me!

Ooh, you've made one at last! It's beautiful Mum - I bet you're thrilled and can't wait to do another!

I see you've been playing with your blog again too!
