PIF For Andrea and New PIF Sign- Ups:)

Well I am not really supposed to reveal this until 23rd June as this is what I stitched for the S&S SAL challenge this time BUT I am so proud of how I finished it off I am just bursting to show you! Lol! I hope Karen won't whip me with wet floss for revealing early! LOL!

As you may remember this round of PIFs I chose to send out randomly as there didn't seem to be many people signing up for them in blogland. Sammy Jo received the first one and this time I decided I wanted to send Andrea something. If you are a reader of her blog you will know she has the most amazing stitching and finishes and I have been so lucky to have been sent one of her beautiful Christmas gifts as well as some SB needleroll charts. Anyway this is what I stitched and finished for her. It is a pinkeep ( minus the pins as I liked it without!) with a pocket in the back and it's the first time I've done the pocket in the back. I have Staci to thank for this finishing technique as I saw it on her blog:) Andrea received it yesterday and I had a lovely email thanking me for it. I am so pleased you like it Andrea:)

I have one more PIF to do SO I noticed that Monique was taking PIF sign up victims on her blog so I signed up! So this is how it works. If you would like to receive something made by me within the next 365 days please comment on this post to say that you are interested. The first three will receive something:) In return you post the same offer on your blog. Simple and a lovely way of spreading joy in the stitchy world:) This is the third one I've signed up for and it's great fun.

I received Lisa's RR from Chris yesterday and it is just so pretty. This is the last one to stitch on and I can't believe how fast it's gone! It hardly seems like 5 minutes since we made a start back in January.

No other stitchy updates today as I want to stitch on Sea Stars tonight before I show you my WIPs pics. Monday evening I stitched on AQC and last night I decided to join in the Tiny Treasures SAL on the HAED forum and stitched on the letter J.
Thank you for your continued visits:) I appreciate them so much:)

Hugs

You've finished it beautifully Sally. I love these pinkeeps with the pocket on the back and was planning to try it myself when I finish my next pinkeep. The backing fabric you've used is perfect for Acorns and Owls...I have the exact same one especially for Acorns and Owls too...lol!
