My first pinkeep!

I decided some time ago to make ‘E is for embroidery’ by Prairie Schooler into a pinkeep. I have never made a pinkeep before. I am not 100% happy with the outcome, but I did learn a lot while making this one and one of the main things I learned is that this design is way to big for a pinkeep. I also need to stretch the fabric better. Oh well, you live and you learn.

I also have a question. Where do you all buy the decorative pins with the pearl heads? I have so few and they are so horribly expensive here. I found a box of about 40 of them for about $6.50 the other day :-/ I bought it though, just because I had so few and they had nice colors. Is there a place on-line that you can order them from for a fair price? Please if you know of a place let me know :o)


I am almost done with the needle roll. I have just been working late so I haven’t been able to finish it. But that means I will not be able to send it until after Easter. That is fine though since I am early anyways.

  1. Linda, that’s a very pretty design you chose.

    I buy pins here for like 90 for $0.50 at JoAnn’s fabrics. They come in assorted colors. I will pick some up for you the next time I go. They are VERY cheap here!

  2. I have bought quite a few pins from this lady and she has a Ebay store. I like her products.
    I bought pin keeps from regular local craft stores as well.

  3. Hi, Linda, I saw you are a newbie on the Gift of Stitching Magazing Group. Isn’t it the best stitching mag. going? Love almost every page of every issue.

Love your Prairie pinkeep!
