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.

Wow, it is stunning. I haven't been brave enough to try the gathered ribbon or a scissor pocket yet.

I'm soooo glad you liked the pin keep. I enjoyed making it for you.
I'm off to see your tutorial.
I love to work with silk ribbon.

I haven't been brave enough to try the pocket yet, but I have gathered ribbon (in the past) and personally I think it's a pain in the you know what to do, so I was very impressed with Shay's work.

Shay, sorry... the pinkeep along is on a BB not on my blog. And I cheated too, because it's a learning experience for many of us (including me) I just made a really good list of supplies and then linked to a couple of on-line tutorials. I am sooooo not good enough to do my own tutorial yet. All I really had to do is sort of encourage and guide everybody and get them pointed in the right direction. You on the other hand...............
