Pinkeep with stork



I stitched this pinkeep using the design of my stork. I wanted it to look a bit rustic and I think I achieved what I wanted. The colours are not as bright as they are shown here.

I got this Victorian purse in e-bay some time ago and I just love it. In those days ladies just carried a handkerchief and a coin for sure... see its size!

I have some more WIPs and soon I will post more photos.

I still have to go slowly otherwise my chest really complains, as well as my blood preassure, which lowers even more. But on whole I am making a very good recovery from my op.

Nice and beautiful pinkeep!

I like the little antique purse although, I think it would not be practical in this days with all the stuff we usually have in our bags, at least, in my case ;)

Cristina, thank you for commenting on my blog. I'm glad you did! I saw your beautiful stork piece on another blog and admired it so much. I hope you are recovering well -- what a shock to have a heart attack at such a young age! Also that your husband and your son Robin are doing well. Take care of yourselves.

Hello Cristina~~ Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog....I am so glad you did~~ It has given me a chance to look at your beautiful stitching... I LOVE the stork pattern and would love to do it myself one day.

I hope your health is improving..... Please keep me updated on your progress....I am near your age (although I am older...) and we often do take our health for granted. I am sure just knowing you are surrounded by prayer from your stithching friends will help you so much.

Please take care and stay in touch~ Faye
