For My Pinkeep Collection

Bet you didn't expect to see me back again so soon...lol!



This is a little angel I stitched a couple of years ago for my Mum, and have been wanting to stitch it again for myself.  I've used Orchid Belle Soie Silk, 1 over 2 on 48ct cream Gander Linen, so she's turned out a lot smaller this time.  I'd thought of a few different ways I would like to finish her, but eventually decided on a quick pinkeep for my pinkeep collection.  I attached the pretty ivory ribbon down the side, with tiny pearls that I found while rummaging through my stash!  The pink ribbon trim is some gorgeous taffeta ribbon which I've recently started collecting from Stampin' Up.  It won't be long now before I have all the colours they do in the ⅛" width.

When I last stitched this angel I thought it was a freebie, but I'm not so sure it is now, as I know it can also be found in the book Rouge published by Marabout. If anyone out there has any other information about this little angel I would love to know.

Thanks for visiting again, I love to read your comments.  :o)

Hi Carol thought I recognised that little angel. I did the exact one and made it into a heart. At the moment I can't remember where I got the idea but as soon as I remember I will let you know. Yours looks lovely in pink , mine is white. Come and have a look I have photos on my post today. Ciao Alison Italy
