Look At this !!!!!!!!!

This is the first of three posting today as we have time to get all my news on so we are doing it all at once now :))


This is the best one I love It DO YOU, It is special to me! I really am glad it turned out verry verry good! :-)
LOL
I finished my first Mary Kirby called 'Home' (number 1) I wanted a pinkeep like my mum Lena-lou. She helped me to do it by showing me but I did do it all and I used glue when it had dried my mum did stitch all round the edge for me as it was too hard for me. Otherwise I did it all myself and I picked all the colours to go together. This is on 16 count aida which I do think looks nicer than binca but it is easier for me than evenweave/linen that I did the SB sheep on. I am going to make that into a fob real soon!




This below is showing you the pins I choose and a close up of my ribbon




Here you can see what I chose for the back if you like it as much as me please leave me a comment because I worked very hard to do this and I am so PROUD of myself :))




Thank-you for looking and commenting have a nice week and please look at my other 2 posts below and leave me a comment if you would like because I love them ;-)

Oooo I think I'm first to comment on this??
Its wonderful Amy, I love your fabric and the pins and ribbon you chose for your pinkeep. The pins go well with the design, I might have some squares of fabric for you when you visit. I think that you are ever so clever to finish it all by yourself and I'm proud of you too.

Hugs Aunty Su

Your pinkeep is very professionally done. I hope you enjoy Mary and Hoover as much as I did. I stitched mine on one piece of linen and hope to get it framed very soon.(http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p=999&gid=10558206&uid=466342). Since I finished mine, I found an old Just Cross Stitch magazine with a couple of tiny charts with Mary and Nick and I'm going to include those on the sampler as well. Have fun with her.
