Whaoohooo...too exciting :-D :-D :-D

I received this Pinkeep, last week, from my friend Colette :-)) It was a wonderful surprise and so totally gorgeous... all stitched 1/1 and it is absolutely perfect, I really love everything about it . Infact, I was so touched, I couldn't speak for sometime and I nearly cried with happiness. Colette has such a warm heart and has a habit of making me feel like this :-D...yes, she knocks me out with her kindness!!



This is the back below which is a very fine linen and Colette has added a tiny label in even tinier 1/1 stitching with a Nun's Stitch border to personalise the piece. Can you see how it has different coloured pins on each side? One side they are a blue and the other they are a magenta pink! I think that her idea is very original and goes brilliantly with the overdyed silk ribbon that runs around the pinkeep, so nicely co-ordinated, isn't it!! To get any gift sent to you out of the blue is amazing but to get one as nice as this I feel really lucky indeed :-))




I made the collage to show you some of the many details that have gone into making this the pretty Pinkeep it is. Isn't it superb!!
Some of you may know of Colette already but for those of you who don't...you really should go and take a look here at Colette's most amazing albums...careful ;-)I warn you ;-)... beware the eyes they are too spectalular :-DDD

What a joy to receive such a sweet pinkeep from a friend. She did a fantastic job with it. Your photography really showcases it so well.
I am well acquainted with her photo gallery- another great place to go for inspiration.

It's a really lovely pinkeep but no more than you deserve because you are such a lovely lovely person. My dh remarked on how lovely you look and I told him what a lovely person you were as well.
Lots of love
