My First Pinkeep.

I tried my hand at making a pinkeep yesterday afternoon. I decided that I would make LHN Watermelon up into one and see how I got on before I made one with Chatelaine Lavender Mandala. I am not all that happy with the result but I guess I will get better at it :) The piccie is a bit blurry I'm afraid but it gives you an idea of how it looks. I actually stitched this pieces last year and it has been rolled up in a draw until I finally decided what to do with it! I might add more pins to it yet.

We have been to the Museum of Streetlife in Hull today and it was well worth going to. Most of Hull's museums are free so if you are in the area and want somewhere to go it's well worth it. We would have had a look at Wilberforce Museum too but we didn't have time so will visit there at Spring Bank half term.

I think I am going down with cold or something. I have felt quite rough for the last few days and today I ache and have a sore throat. It's just one thing after another:) At least it's now when the holidays are nearly over rather than when they've just begun!

Looks good Sally, dont know why you feel its not brilliant as it certainly looks fine to me and better than I could do. I wouldnt have a clue where to begin.

Its look good Sally - I am sure far better than what I could achieve first time round!

Hope nothing comes of not feeling good.

Your pinkeep looks very pretty, and I think it looks great on the finishing.

How did the Phyto cake turn out? If you get a minute and wouldn't mind giving me the receipe I think I'd like to give it a try as well.

Glad you had fun at the museum, and I hope you're feeling better soon.

I think your pinkeep looks great too. Well done for having the courage to even attempt one - I haven't! Hope you're feeling better soon and it doesn't develop into anything nasty. Have a great weekend. x
