HoE Freebie Exchange FOR Neila C.

Finally my HoE (Hooked on Exchanging) Freebie Exchange piece has arrived to its destination... whew...
I was very anxious if it was lost at somewhere...
Normally the parcel I send out took about one week, though this time it took more than three weeks to the US!

By the way, here is what I've made for my partner
Neila C.


I don't know why, but I wanted to make a pinkeep in red thread, when I've heard the word "Freebie Exchange".
So I picked up this design and have chosen DMC #115, and made it into a pinkeep.

This time I used Pearl Pin for Top pin, and also used red flower ribbon.
Was this too much? My husband said that it's too much, lol


Here is a photo of pins, this time I used simple red and white making pins for both sides of pinkeep.

And here is a photo of the backing fabric which I used for this pinkeep.

I don't know she liked it or not, as I haven't been hearing from her yet.
But I do hope she liked it and as well as some goodies that I added in a parcel...

As I promised, I will post some presents from my Japanese friends in the next post!

And also, my turf kit in hedgehog is growing a little by little, and vice versa my Grass Dog is dead... so I cut all his hair (turf), and waiting for it will grow again...
I will take a photo of them and will post in the next post, too!

Yuko.
Thank goodness your parcel arrived safely. Sending things is the biggest worry! Your pinkeep is so beautiful. ~I love DMC 115, it's a lovely colour and changes very nicely. The trim is just right. It needs to have such an eye catching trim because the design is so beautiful and simple.

I am SO sad about the little dog. I hope it comes back ago. I'm sure your hedgehog will look stunning :>)
Hugs, Angela

Hi Yuko,
your red pin-keep is classy & elegant with the added touch of pearl pin u used.

valerie said...

What a lovely pinkeep! I love your finishing techniques. How do you make those pins? That is something I would love to learn.

I finally updated my blog to show the finished and framed Love You Mom project that I made. It is almost like yours! So funny that we were working on the same project at the same time!
