My First PIF

I heard from Kath that she has received the PIF I stitched for her. As it was the first one I've ever done I relieved to hear it had arrived safely and that she likes it.

Lizzie Kate - Friendship Grows

Stitched on linen with DMC threads

It's a Lizzie Kate freebie called Friendship Grows. A quick search of Kath's blog had revealed that she liked Lizzie Kate designs and when I saw this design I thought of the lovely pictures of her garden that she has also posted on her blog. I stitched it on some unidentified linen that I had in my stash and backed it with the Pins and Needles fabric I bought a few weeks go.

You may well observe that there is no bow on the top of the pinkeep. This was only my second attempt at a pinkeep and after spending an hour trying to create a bow I gave up, I hope Kath doesn't mind. Something I will have to work on for any future pinkeeps.

The pinkeep looks wonderful. And I love the glass vase with the lovely flowers it is displayed against.

Stitching Kath said...

the pin keep is lovely i really must try to do one, but i wouldnt know where to start. also the black aida is really not that bad to stitch on, although i do make sure i have something light on my lap like a piece of paper or one of my cream cushions, so i can see the hole ok, otherwise i would struggle when it gets darker and i ma stitching with the light on
