Pineberry Lane Pinkeep No. 1

Just a quick post to show off the first of the two Pineberry Lane pinkeeps I'm stitching

it's the first time I've stitched on this dark linen ......... and I have to say, probably the last, as it was incredibly difficult to work on, even in natural daylight - anyone else experienced any problems working light thread on dark linen - the darker thread was easier though. It'll be much easier to stitch on the lighter linen and thankfully that's what the second (larger one) is done on ...... phew!!

Not sure what's with the lippy on the larger of the two black sheep, but that's what the pattern asked for - two red stitches for the mouth!! LOL

I was pleased at the weekend to find a dark grey trim to finish it off, because it looks very similar to the one in the pattern - a pig to sew in though!!

Now to start on pinkeep number 2!!

Well your finish is wonderful, Julia, worth all the hard work and squinting in the dull evening light and on dark linen. I love the edging you used! Great job!
