My newest pinkeep is another of the LHN thread packs 'Plums'. Sonja happened to find a cute ribbon when she stopped to pick up some DMC for me at a shop in her village. She gave me a piece for this pinkeep. Click on all the photos to enlarge for more detail.
My backing fabric was the fabric I used to show you my finished stitching yesterday. I also used a purple and lilac color pins to reflect the overdyed thread used. This is a piece of handmade bobbin lace I bought last year in Brugge, Belgium during the lace days in August. Can you believe I only had to pay 2 euro for it? If I wanted to make this doily myself, it would cost me more to buy the thread than I paid for the made doily.
Here is Sonja's second pinkeep ever! She is making all four of the LHN's 'Season of...'. We got her items all kitted up for her to make the next three at home. She picked out fabrics from my quilt stash and we got her mating board and batting ready. I also shared some of my trim with her as we found some perfect matches for the next three pinkeeps in this series. I am looking forward to seeing them finished.
