This weekend, I also attempted a pinkeep for the very first time. I used the beautiful squares that Kathy stitched for me way back in round #5 of Fair and Square. I think that I have show off Kathy's stitching quite well. This is another one for my ever growing smalls basket. I found it was pretty easy and as long as I took my time, everything seemed to line up nice and straight. I do have a question though for all those pinkeep experts out there. When you stitch the front and back together, do you find that the linen seems to pull a little around the stitch? I found this happened all the way round, but was completely covered by the trim.
As I am still awaiting fabric and threads to stitch my next projects, I have been stitching up some small designs to use up the small pieces of linen I have laying around. This is the second pinkeep that I attempted. I am finding these quite addictive.

Finally, I have one more position left for my PIF giveaway. I would really love to have a third person. So if there is anyone interested in receiving one of my hand stitched items, then please leave a comment on my blog, letting me know.
