My first attempt at ..
Making a pinkeep! I had so much fun that I made a second one!.. LOL (Go Me!)
I had to do some finishing of a coworkers cross stitching that she wanted to give her grown children for Christmas (Which she finished about 20 yrs ago she said). I told her I would help her by getting the finishes on some mounting board, which I did tonight. And she now has to go to a frame shop and get some special sized frames. Since one was 16" X 10", and the other 2 were 9"square.
I used Brian's muscles (I knew he was good for something!.. LOL) to help me cut the mat board. I had a few odd sizes left, so we then cut them up in pieces to be used in the future. Well I guess the future was about 20 minutes after he got done cutting, I had to have him cut a few more.. LOL
So here is the results of the pinkeeps I made to night. I did them differently. I actually attached some twine to hang the pinkeep. I love both of them! Too bad I cant keep them. :( Coming to someone's mail box, soon!
