[HOE] Pinkeep Exchange FOR Deb

A few days ago, I've received a lovely e-card from Deb who was my HOE (Hooked on Exchanging) partner told me that my parcel has safely arrived to her, so I post some photos of what I've made for her.

I was a bit worried as I didn't know her taste much, so looked through her blog often and I thought this sophisticated design would be nice for her!

This design is the one of "Tiny Inspirations" © Thistle Threads and named "Miniature Quaker Sampler".
I changed thread colours a bit as I didn't have recommended threads.
I love Quaker and these kind of colours very much!
I added our initials and year 2008 on it.


Here is the photo of top pin and ribbon I added this time.
Isn't this perfect for this pinkeep and colour?
I love to add big bead or pom-pom like this on top of pinkeep very much, it makes very good accent for the finished piece, I think!








I also made some rose pins for both sides of pinkeep, as I had blue metal roses in my stash and thought would be nice for this pinkeep design!
(on the left hand side photo...)


Here is backing fabric which I used for this pinkeep.

I chose very classic fabric as this pinkeep design is also classic.
Actually I loved this very much when I completed this pinkeep, honestly I really wanted to keep it for myself, lol.

I'm so happy that I heard that Deb liked this and some goodies I have sent for her!

By the way, this was the first time for me to join in HOE and exchanged in this group.
It was very fun and I'm very looking forward to receive a pinkeep from someone!!

This is very excited, the deadline will be soon, so means I will receive it soon! :D
I'll show and post what I received when it arrived to me!

This pinkeep is wonderful. I am alway amazed when I come to visit your blog. It is so pleasant to look at. The layout is very professional and I love all the graphics and different fonts you use to make it very interesting. I'm not so good with the computer and my blog is very simple. But I see we use the same "Blogger" company so maybe I will expertiment a bit in how my blog is designed. Thank you for being such an inspiration.

Hi Yuko, another truly beautiful piece. Your finishing is as always just perfect. The bead that you chose for the centre pin just sets off the design.
I love Quaker designs there is just something special about them. I have decided that when I finish my current piece which isn't far away that I am going to do Beatrix Potter. Its a design that I have always loved. Take care - Sandra.
