Petite Exepmlary No.1 by EEF

While my dear friend Nancy had been preparing a wonderful gift for me, I was stitching this "Petite Exemplary No.1" for her at the same time to surprise her, as I had something else to send to her!

I received a lovely e-mail from her that she has safely received my parcel, and said she liked what I've stitched for her!
I'm very glad to hear it from her, it was very pleasure to stitch something for my dear friend!

This time, I added very thin ribbon and fabric flowers (?) on top of this pinkeep.
Here is the close up photo of it.
It's very cute, isn't it?

I love this, and I have some more left, so will use this for another opportunity when I make pinkeeps in the future!

Here is the backing fabric I used for this pinkeep.
This is my favourite fabric, very soft pink polka dot.


I stitched on 32ct linen with one strand as the designer recommends, so it looks very delicate, doesn't it?! or I think a bit weak, it's only my opinion, though...

I added our initials N & Y on it.

Ewe & Eye & Friends (EEF) designs are very enjoyable to stitch!
I love this designer and have many charts with me, so once I settle down (at the moment, I have so many things to stitch...), I want to stitch EEF designs a lot as my EEF collection!

Hi Yuko! I am so lucky that you stitched something so beautiful for me. It is even more beautiful in person! I think stitching with one thread made it look very soft. Thank you again dear friend.
