Todays Pin Keeper

I got an email form a CQI member the other day showing me a pin keeper that she made. It is a beautiful pin keeper that was done in yellows with the most wonderful stitching.
She had stated in the email that she was not able to participate in the CQI pin keeper swap but she wanted me to see the pin keeper that she did. As I said it was wonderful, just beautiful!

So in returning her email I told her that I would be proud to swap with her. So here it is. The pin keeper that I made for her:


Front


Back

I had taken my time with this one as I had wanted to play with the design a little bit. I printed up the silkie from a trading card that I had recently found in the clutter of my desk. All of the stitching was done in silk ribbon, the high lights are from my recent going broke marathon in my favorite store. I am hoping that my new friend likes what I have done with the pin keeper.

This pin keep will be off to Finland tomorrow.
