May pinkeep is finished

The May pinkeep is finished. I love this. It is lots of fun and Angela's description on my comments of the colors being like a bag full of jelly beans is spot on.
I used a pink fabric with flowers for the back and bright pink ric rac trim which is attached with a mix of pink and purple glass headed pins. The pink and lilac bow is stuck in with a florist flower pin for a fun addition along with the adorable little dragonfly charm. I bought this charm to use for my crazy quilting one day and it is the perfect touch on this pinkeep.

I love dragonflies! I just saw the first one of the season here in our garden yesterday. Now that the weather is warmer, I see them here more often. They are very plentiful up north in the Drents-Friese Wold where our weekend cottage is. I was so very lucky last year in July. I was trying to take a photo of a beautiful large bumble bee and he flew off as I was about to snap the photo while this pretty, blue dragonfly came and rested right where the bumble bee had been. I had been trying for some time to get a good photo of the dragonflies and was really pleased with this one.

Another beauty, Heidi! I bet you can make these pinkeeps with your eyes closed by now. Congrads on your finish.

Pretty pinkeep, and with the flying-needle-damselfly-dragonfly pic, too! You're supposed to make a wish every time you see one, you know....I'm thinking yours stopped for a reason. Martina has a freebie one on Chatelaine Designs that's blue like yours. You may have to commemorate this little dragon!
