Pinkeeps


Here is a little pinkeep I just finished. I'm working on a few. Trying to come up with something "brilliant" for the MJ's Contest. The pinkeeps in the contest gallery ARE brilliant. It is going to take alot of thinking and needle prowess to compete! Here is one, but I've got a few more in the works.

I found this really neat silver plated oyster shell at the thrift store and added vintage lace and pink fabric...should have used pink velvet, but couldn't find any. I might redo this one. Don't particularly like the puckers....I'm going to search for pink velvet. I would like to find some opalescent fabric for the pearl. I haven't attached the oyster to the silver shell yet, so this may be a redo!! The little pearl in the center is a needle sharpener.

I'll be posting more pinkeepers as I finish them.

Thank you for visiting today. Feel free to sit for a spell and wander through my archives of sewing projects, aprons, original poems and stories, musings and vintage treasures. I really love guests in my home....and if you wish, leave me a comment so I will know you were here! AG
