What a darling pinkeep. You are getting to be so brilliant at this Ann! I am wishing that I had time to experiment with thsi sort of thing, but after June I will be ready. And hopefully I can get a lot of stitching done this Summer. I love your color choices too...this is very appealing to the eye. You do choose colors well for these pieces you create. Keep up the good work!
