Win a Pin

For the past year I have been admiring all the lovely pinkeeps which keep appearing on various sites. I read and re-read Vonna's instructions and still I didn't have the courage to actually make one myself.

After receiving the lovely 'Blessed Be' pinkeep from Harmien I just knew I had to attempt it and make my very first pinkeep for her. As always the stitching was great fun - but then came the hard part - finishing!!! Back to The Twisted Stitcher Tutorials which are fabulous and everyone should check out. But still I didn't feel self-assured enough to attempt it so I emailed the non-suspecting Harmien who gave me some additional practical & moral support and voila - MY FIRST PINKEEP.

'Winter Joy' by the Little by Little Design Co.
from JCS 2006 Christmas Ornaments

stitched 1/2 on 32 ct platinum Lugana with DMC floss


Now that I have my first pinkeep under my belt I want to do something else I have spotted on many blogs - a draw for a bit of personal stitching.

During 2009 I will stitch and finish three Christmas pinkeeps to send out. If you are interested in receiving one let me know in the comments section of this post
on or before December 12.

On December 13 I will have three names drawn and will post them that evening. Remember these are for Christmas 2009 - you will receive your pinkeep sometime before December 2009.

Great job! I have a site I no longer update with two tutorials still on it and pinkeeps was one. I left the site as I know it is listed on a finishing smalls site. I know how fun pinkeeps are as I started my pinkeep basket years ago. Since then I have enjoyed watching many others get the pinkeep fever.

Hugs ~

Stunning and daring! I've seen your stunning pinkeep on Harmien's blog and really wowed!!!
I will have a look at the tutorial as I've never tried them either...
I'd love to be part of the draw, so please count me in...
It's a pity than you can't be part of our HalloSal but I do understand. Too many commitments is bad for your peace of mind...
I'm glad to see that you've started stitching for Xmas too. Are you decorating yet?
Many hugs!
Lili
