SBEBB Valentine Exchange for CathyB

Yesterday I received a lovely email from Cathy letting me know she received her Valentine exchange. I made her a pinkeep using a design for this year's Lizzie*Kate series. By the time I stitched it, I didn't have the threads that the chart called for, so I went with my own color conversion based on the photo in the chart, I used DMC939 for the letters and Crescent Colours for the rest ( Eve's Leaves, Weeping Willow, Cherry Tomato and Carrie Berry).

This was my first happy dance of 2008...I'm glad I can finally show it :)

Ayer recibí un lindo email de Cathy, haciendome saber que había recibido el intercambio que le envie por San Valentín. Le hice un pinkeep usando un diseño de la nueva serie anual de Lizzie*Kate. Cuando lo estaba bordando no tenía los hilos que indicaba el gráfico así que hice mi propia conversion basada en la foto del gráfico; usé DMC 939 para las letras y Crescent Colours para el resto (Eve's Leaves, Weeping Willow, Cherry Tomato y Carry Berry).

Este fue mi primera labor terminada del 2008...me alegra que finalmente la pueda mostrar :)

Carla, the pinkeep is so fantastic! I think I may have to stitch this series now and make them all into pinkeeps! Can you tell me how you made the bow? That is the hardest part for me and yours looks so neat. Is there a tutorial somewhere I can follow? Thanks. You can e-mail me at dhahn@myactv.net.
