Exchange Received !!

Oh my Gosh, the pinkeep is really beautiful. And the piece of linen is one of my favorite colors. I can't wait to find a project to use it on.

Exchange Mailed !!!

I got my exchange in the mail this morning. Hope it reaches its destination quickly. I am to say the least not really happy with the finish but it was my FIRST finish that came out. The real first piece was relegated to the scrap pile. Maybe I can salvage it, but, who knows. Hope my partner likes it.

Beautiful Pinkeep Arrived

I received this lovely pinkeep late Friday, but with the grandchildren
Pinkeep from Shay, Texas, USA

here haven't been able to get to the computer much. This came at just the perfect time. I had just posted instructions on how to "gather" a ribbon to go around a pinkeep on one of my BBs because I'm heading up a Pinkeep-A-Long but I didn't have an example to show. So, guess what I just finished doing. I quickly snapped pictures and added it to the instructions I had posted the other day. I was very sure to tell them it was Shay who did the beautiful work too! She not only gathered the ribbon but put a scissors pocket on the back. This is just a really well made and beautiful pinkeep, Shay. Thank you so much. I am truly proud to own this.

My Blog, Home of the Totally Useless SAL, come on over and join the fun.

Lagging behind

Umm, remember how organised I was with my pinkeep? Well I sort of forgot to actually mail it. So I apologise heaps and heaps to my partner. What a great example I am!!!! NOT lol

I was going to post it this morning but forgot that everything is closed with today being ANZAC Day. So it will have to go Monday. I hope you think it's worth the wait :-)

It is great to see everyone posting!!! And how exciting to see our first pinkeep!!!!!!!!!! It's gorgeous. I can't wait to see the rest!


Although be it a week late, I am doing the happy dance. I will ship Monday to my partner. I really enjoyed this. I look forward to the Just Nan exchange next.

Pinkeep Flew Away

Oh, sorry didn't think about putting an actual post, I just left a comment, oooops. My pinkeep went out on time on Tuesday. I almost didn't make the deadline waiting for glue to dry, but it seemed dry to me before the P.O. closed so DH ran it over for me. I actually had a hard time mailing it because I like the design so much, may have to do it again for myself, so ENJOY Partner!!

Pinkeep on it's way

HI All
My pinkeep is on it's way today. Sorry I'm late but I forgot to take it with me to mail yesterday and the Post Office is closed when I get home. I hope my partner likes it.

Hi Everyone...
Just a note let you know my pinkeep is on it's way to "guess where" today.
Sure hope my exchange person will like it! It was fun to stitch and put together!
