[HOE] Pinkeep Exchange FROM Jayne

Hi everyone, it's been a while since the last time I posted...

Thank you so much everyone, cheering me up, warm wishes, on the last post.

Actually I still have been ill (having a cold), it's been about 2 weeks now.
Finally my fever went down today, but still have slight fever and bad cough.

By the way, here is my HOE (Hooked on Exchanging) Pinkeep Exchange from Jayne (no blog) in the UK!
She spoiled me a lot, she added Bent Creek chart which was in my wish list, beautiful fabric, Altoid's (strong peppermints!) and lovely red thread and beautiful Pinkeep!

Here it is! She stitched from Prairie Schooler's design and made it as pinkeep.
I love it very much, especially the beautiful ribbon and beads pins combinations!
That's really beautiful.

She stitched her name and her country on the back of
I always forget to stitch on my name and where I live on the back of work when I exchange... from next time I shouldn't forget it!!

Here are top pin and ribbon which she added to this pinkeep, isn't this beautiful?!
I love this very much, colour matches so well together and she added beads pins around the edges, too.
How gorgeous pinkeep this is!

Thank you, Jayne, and sorry that I couldn't post your exchange soon after I received.
Now it's in my cupboard where my friends and my works are in!
And your strong peppermint Altoid's helped me a lot to breathe properly, as I had stuffy nose! :D

As I'm not fine yet, I can't think about cross stitching...
I hope I can stitch soon again!
Take care of yourself, everyone.

Hi Yuko, I hope you are starting feel a lot better.
What a beautiful pinkeep. You have some very special friends.
I also didn't know that you could buy Altoids in England. My sister is going there in June. I will have to get her to find some for me and bring them back. I haven't found them in Australia. - Sandra.

What a lovely pinkeep. Jayne does beautiful work. I have never made a pinkeep before. I must try this idea soon. I especially love the Prairie Schooler little designs...they are prefect for this.
