Secret Stitching 2 Revealed

In the midst of work craziness and long bouts of secret stitching, I was delighted to get an email from Mindi letting me know that the PIF gift which I posted to her last week had safely arrived. She is very pleased with it, which is great! I really enjoyed stitching the pinkeep and tiny biscornu fob for her. Now only a few more bouts of secret stitching this month, and I'll be visiting the post office again - hurrah! Mindi took some lovely photos, including some of the extras, so pop along to her blog if you are interested.


Pinkeep: design taken from Examplar Dames 'Peace'
stitched on 32ct Country Stitch Kiwi Illusions 'Acorn'
fibres: Crescent Colours 'Joshua Tree' and Stitches and Spice ' Wintered Marble'



Reverse of pinkeep, and front of scissor fob, materials as listed above

Same portion of design, stitched over 1 for the fob

Happy stitching and have a wonderful weekend! Spare a thought for me, achingly creaking through my first hockey match of the season tomorrow morning...

Stephanie - you did a fantastic job, I was hopping up and down like a kid at Christmas as I opened the package and gorgeous things kept coming out of it. Thank you for agreeing to let me pay off my PIF obligations by doing some lotteries over the next year.

Hockey! Don't overdo it and get too sore.

Your PIF gift to Mindi is just gorgeous!! You did a great job. I love how you've finished the back of the pinkeep, great idea!
Do you play ice-hockey or grass hockey? Have fun :)
