Design: A Tudor Rose Valentine by Debbie Draper Designs
Threads: DMC 321
Fabric: 32ct cream Belfast Zweigart
Notions: white braid, red pearlized pins, and heart fabric
Finished as pinkeep: 1/17/2011
A little improvising with this pinkeep as I had only a small scrap of red fabric in my stash and decided to go with the varying hearts fabric for the backing material as a substitute despite its pink color compared to the red of the cross stitched design. I think perhaps I should have made the pinkeep a bit smaller, but it will do ;)
I've gotten a lot quicker at completing pinkeeps as I've taken a hint from BeckySC and started to lace the fabrics at the back and on the sides instead of using glue, which can make using pins a trial.
I hope you are enjoying your Monday!
Until next time ^____^
