Russian doll pinkeep!

I've sent out a few christmas ornaments recently and the last that went out was being the first that arrived safely as i heard from Olga last night. That was pretty quick to the took only 5 days. When i received the magazine last month and saw this design i've thought of Olga, so stitched it right away to be in time for x'mas. I am really happy to hear it got to you safely.

Christmas Greetings pinkeep
Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine, issue Dec.2009
Designed by: Rhona Norrie

Can't resist so i made a start on this lovely design which i've posted a picture on my last post. This one also is featured at the same magazine from above picture finish. Maybe... i can finish it for this year...! I have to set it aside though for now as i want to stitch an ornament for this month, the last for this SAL Christmas ornaments! And need to stitch a piece for a RR but i am still looking for the right design. Her theme is birdhouses.

My neck/shoulder feels a lot better these last days, so when i went for the threapy early this week, she decided that'll be the last. I had to drive Dh back to the ship yesterday and i did felt bit of pain on my upper shoulder during driving and when cleaning the windows too. I think i have to take it slowly but i am really glad it is healing very well.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog especially to those who take the time to leave me a comment. I do appreciate them so much.

Mylene wat heb je weer een prachtige pinkeep gemaakt, hij is werkelijk super! Ook je kerstprojectje wordt al heel mooi. Veel plezier bij het verder borduren.

The pinkeep is adorable. Love the way you did the ribbon on top. And that is a perfect design for Olga, indeed.

Just be careful with that shoulder and I'm sure it will get better and better. These things always take more time than we would like.

Hi Mylene,

What a darling ornament. I'm so excited to get mine. I have the perfect spot for it.
So sorry to hear your husband is gone again. That is a really hard trial to endure. Just know how much we respect and love you both for your sacrifices for freedom.
Take Care. Hope your shoulder heals soon!

The Russian Doll pinkeep is really pretty

Brigitte said...

A very nice ornament for Olga.
Hopefully your shoulder will soon be pain free. But be careful when doing household chores. I found out that cleaning windows is the worst for my shoulder.

Hi Mylene
Your pin keep is beautiful. I am glad to hear your shoulder is feeling better. Try to take it easy, if you can, to let it heal fully.
Hope you are having a lovely Saturday.

Michelle said...

The pinkeep is beautiful and the finishing is perfect! I love Russian dolls and this trio is so cute :)

I am so glad to hear that your shoulder is feeling a lot better!

Suzanne said...

I love the pinkeep, the Russian dolls are a great design.

Maybe cleaning windows is a little too much activity for your shoulder and neck. It's probably better to take it a little easy and let it heal up. I hope that it improves soon.

Great exchange piece. Am so glad you couldn't resist starting the Christmas piece, as it's lovely - will enjoy watching it develop. Glad to hear your neck/shoulder is feeling much better - don't overdo things though! :0)
