Blah!!!!! 1st pinkeep done

Hi! I really dont want to post this horrid thing, but hey! it's my first one and I did learn a few things. I do like the biscornu's better though. This is why I dont get in exchanges, lol





Stayed tune for more chuckles as I tackle a scissor FOB. I have beaded ones, but nothing stitched.

I would like to share a good bargain, I think?
Here's a link to Needle In A Haystack - Sale Information they have 5.00 R & R Reproduction grab bags of 4 Stitcher's Eighths of various colors and counts.
I have ordered a few. I hope to get a good selection.
I have ordered off ebay from sugarmaplefabrics their assorted cuts and have never got anything of real satisfaction.
Happy Stitching to all and to all No frogging!!

What's wrong with your pinkeep? It looks good to me! It's not the easiest finish to do, especially the first time.

I think your pinkeep looks wonderful! I know the first one I ever made wasn't very good, but I keep getting a bit better every time I make one. The most important thing is you're pushing yourself and trying new finishes.

You did a great job! I haven't even done a 1st one yet. Keep at it, you know what they say "Practice makes perfect", although it looks perfect to my eyes. Congratulations in a big way!

Leena said...

It's a lovely pinkeep! Congratulations for your first pinkeep :)

I think it's great! You've made a super job of it!

I haven't tackled one yet myself (I'm more of a scissor fob and biscoru gal) but I 'might' give one a go before the year is out...I'll probably be all fingers and thumbs with it though.

I prefer to see something done rather than follow a written tutorial, so I don't know how I'll get on. I'm more of a visual person, when it comes to learning I think.

Thanks for sharing.
