In my previous post, Julie wanted to know what was hanging above my bed. Samplers I stitched last summer using DMC 115 on 14ct white aida, and finished into hanging pinkeeps. (The ribbon hangers can be easily removed because they are only pinned on at the side tops.)
I adore the eyecatching and classic look of red and white stitchery and DMC 115 is absolutely one of my favorite threads!
These are rather large for pinkeeps, 7" square! But I think they look perfect hanging from the pegs on my shelf :)
I know this trio was published as a set in an older American cross stitch magazine, I just can't find it. Does it look familiar to anyone? I looked through all of mine (yes, all 20+ yrs worth!) I admit that I don't keep track of project info after I've finished something. This blog is helping me to keep track ;)
Thank you to Kim (no blog) and Annemarie for their help with the AMAP 'a et alphabet suite' freebie that you can find here. Barbie, the AMAP stitcher hornbook freebie is linked underneath the pinkeep pic in red ;)
Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. Each one brightens my day like a ray of sunshine :)
