This is the pinkeep I stitched for Jayne in the Stitching Accessory exchange. The pattern is from the June issue of The Gift of Stitching, it's Scandinavian pin cushion, but as you can see, I didn't make a pincushion. I started to do the pattern for the reverse of the pincushion, but changed my mind after I had stitched the border. I used a DMC variegated thread. Jayne had said she liked neutral and terracota colours, and something different, so hopefull I covered it. The reverse is a matching picture, although for some reason it looks pink on here, but it wasn't. LOL Originally, I was using some lovely fabric that I had, but at the last minute decided to get something else, it was some fabric I'd had my eye on for a while. I also bought some ribbon, which has a gold line down each side, and I used gold headed pins. I think I need to make myself a pinkeep now, so may use the CCN Bee pinkeep that I stitched back in Jan/Feb, that was made into a pinkeep in the pattern, but I'd decided to make it into a box top, however I have yet to locate the fabric I have in my minds eye for that. There's a distinct lack of shops where I live.
And here is what I received from Elaine. I was lucky to receive two things, a lovely scissor fob, and a pincushion. I actually used the pincushion the day it arrived.
