Miniature Pinkeep

About a week ago, I joined in "Monthly Finishing Challenge" and the March Challenge was a "Pinkeep", so I made this pinkeep for the March challenge!
This is actually very very tiny as the title of this post, it's a miniature pinkeep!

The left one is a normal egg! So can you imagine how small this pinkeep is?!
It was fun while I was stitching as imagining how it will be at the end.

This is from Prairie Schooler's new promotion card "Peep".

Actually I miss chosen the fabric (lol), and that's why this became very tiny, but I thought it would be very fun if I could make a very tiny pinkeep.
As it's so tiny, I couldn't use a tambour to hold the fabric, so it was a bit hard to stitch, but was very fun!

Here is the backing fabric which I used for this pinkeep, it's printed hens and chicks, so I thought it would be a perfect for this pinkeep design!

Here is a photo of ribbon and pins!
I added yellow gingham checked shrunk ribbon on top.

Now it's placed next to my Prairie Autumn Mirror, and it's so tiny and cute!

April Challenge is a Needle Roll. I have never made any needle rolls before, so I don't know I can make it or not... I'm a bit nervous now, lol...
But I have a very lovely pattern, so will challenge it!!

Please fingers crossed for me! :D

I saw this petite pinkeep on Monthly Finishing blog and it's delightful! Did you use Clover Applique pins as they are so tiny? I love the backing fabric too - perfect.
