Quaker Pinkeep

As I wrote in the last post, I have been practicing to make pinkeep recently!
And here is the second pinkeep for me, this time I have decided the theme, it's "black", and have chosen the design from A Mon Ami Pierre (free chart).
Here are some photos!

To stitch Quaker design was the first time for me andit was quite fun!
At first, I thought to stitch only in black, but it seemed a bit gloomy, so added my initials in smoky-pink!

This time also I've made the top-pin by myself with black furPompom.
Just have glued to the needle!
I love this lovely fur Pompom very much! Isn't this really cute?!

The backing fabric that I used is here.
I also like this cloth which I've chosen for this pinkeep! Very beautiful, isn't it?!
The size of this pinkeep is about 9cm square, it's tiny and lovely!

I think the last pinkeep I've made is too big as a pinkeep, lol (it's about 14cm square...)
But my mum really likes my first pinkeep (the last one), so I will giveit to her as a present!

I'm joining "Pinkeep Exchange" for Japanese group, and the partnerjust have been decided recently, so now I have been looking for the design for her.
Until then, I will try to practice and want to make 1 or 2 more pinkeeps!

[note] 32ct Belfast Linen (Antique Ivory) x DMC
design from : AMAP (freechart)

Thanks, Yuko san-se, I have viewed the pages you linked for tutorial on making pinkeep. I am now gathering materials for my very first one. When getting it finished, I will invite you to come to my home for a look.

Congratulations, it is really fabulous. I also experiment making pinkeeps : yours are great. I made my first one last Sunday and I am quite happy with it.
I really like the black color and the pompom is great. What a final touch.
